The Educational Trajectories of English Language Learners in Texas - This report examined the performance of English Language Learners (ELLs) in Texas, first grade through high school graduation. The authors found that ELLs who successfully complete English as a Second Language (ESL) or bilingual education programs within three years fare better in meeting math and reading proficiency standards than long-term ELLs. Hispanic ELLs who opt out of ESL or bilingual education programs in favor of English-only courses may be particularly disadvantaged in terms of college enrollment.
