    Pandemic has worsened struggles to teach students learning English – Riverside, California

    Riverside, California 2021-10-10 07:30:06 –

    Six months ago, 16-year-old Hondurans Jeffrey Flores arrived in Fort Worth with his family without knowing English, but knew he would be the first to work in a new country.

    “It’s important for me to learn English so that I can do a good job,” Flores said in Spanish.

    Flores is one of about 1 million Texas students enrolled in English as a second language class, and about 20% of the state’s 5.4 million public school students. He and his two brothers attend the International New Comers Academy in the Fort Worth Independent School District. This academy is new to the country and is designed for students who need to learn English.

    Earlier this year, Texas legislators passed Senate Bill 560. The bill requires educators to develop more strategic plans to improve bilingual education.

    Students like Flores and his brother are not alone in their journey. According to the 2020 census, more people of color, especially Hispanics, come to Texas each year, and nearly two million more Hispanics call Texas their hometown in the last decade. Overall, Color Texas accounted for 95% of the state’s population growth.

    Therefore, teaching non-English-speaking children is more important than ever.
