Even before the pandemic, many students learning English struggled to participate on equal terms in the classroom as they confronted the dual challenge of mastering grade-level content while continuing to learn English. For many English learners, the abrupt shift to learning from home amid the challenges of the pandemic has made that struggle even harder. One school system reported that the rate of low and failing grades among English learners had jumped by 34%—to nearly half of all grades English learners earned.
