Title:  Are Limited English Proficient (LEP) Students Being Taught by Teachers with LEP Training? (Issue Brief)
Description: Are public school teachers with LEP students in their classes trained in teaching LEP students? Are teachers with high percentages of LEP students in their classes more likely to have received LEP training than teachers with low percentages of LEP students? Since communication skills in English courses are so important, are teachers of English more likely to have received LEP training than teachers of other core subjects? Data from the 1993-94 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS), conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), are used to address these questions.
