The four goals of the article are as follows: 1) to engage in debates about ELL from a knowledgeable position; 2) to encourage and support more ELL research and funding for ELL research; 3) to minimize the proliferation of false claims about ELL; 4) to disseminate what has been reasonably well established in the field of ELL. The article includes discussions about bilingual vs. English-Only practices in education and provides examples of ELL models that some schools have used. Less
