How does language diversity impact the need for language interpretation in U.S. schools? Earlier this month, we looked at the growing number of limited-English proficient students in U.S. schools. In this post, we take a closer look at the language support needs of children in education settings.

As of 2016, almost 1 in 4 children in the U.S. (more the 12 million) speak a language other than English at home. The rise of English Language Learning (ELL), ESL and bilingual students in the United States poses unique challenges for school systems and educators. Schools must, under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, ensure that students who are learning English have equal opportunity to progress academically. With the help of interpreters and translators in education settings, educators can ensure that students and families who are learning English are receiving the language support they need to progress in school.
