Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students
President Bush is committed to expanding educational opportunities for all students, including students who are learning the English language and students who are new to this country.
Children learning English face some of the greatest educational challenges due to language and cultural barriers. That is why President Bush and Congress pushed through the historic education reforms of No Child Left Behind. The law ensures that all children--from every ethnic and cultural background--receive a quality education and the chance to achieve their academic potential.
Support: The president's 2005 budget provides $681 million for English language acquisition funding for children who are learning the English language, so they can reach their academic potential and fully participate in the American dream.
