About ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)

In August, 1990, the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, issued a Consent Decree giving the court power to enforce an agreement between the Florida State Board of Education and a coalition of eight groups represented by Multicultural Education, Training and Advocacy, Inc. (META). The Consent Decree settlement terms focus on the following six issues:

  1. Identification and assessment
  2. Equal access to appropriate programming
  3. Equal access to appropriate categorical and other programming for Limited English Proficient (LEP) students
  4. Personnel
  5. Monitoring
  6. Outcome measures
