Allocation and Budgets for ELL

Juan De La Cruz




One of the biggest issues among of our Language Learner students is the lack of receiving an adequate education. †Some schools are having problems allocating enough funding in their budgets to ensure that ELLs learn English as well as meet the same academic requirement as their native English-Speaking counterparts.† The schools in the State of New York, specifically in the city of New York, have many students that are English Language Learners.

†In our school, MS324, about 35 % of our students are English Language Learners. Is the school budget allocation appropriately meeting the needs of our ELL students?

The Department of Education is responsible for the education of every child. Parents and caregivers are concerned about the success of their children in school. Ensuring that ELLs learn English and meet the academic requirements is important to be successful and competitive in the real world.

We will conduct an investigation at MS324 about how the funding is allocated and budgeting for our English Language Learners.


The class will be divided as follow:

        Group 1†††††††††† Determining what percentage of students are English Language Learners for the year 2019 - 2020

        Group 2†††††††††† Determining what percentage of the budget are allocated for ELL students for the year 2019 to 2020

        Group 3†††††††††† Determining the cost for language learner by grades and per student.


Each group is responsible to have final product:

4.      Evaluate Existing Public Policies: Find policies or organizations that already exists regarding supporting students with challenges. What do these policies say? Or Who do they benefit? Do any policies need to be changed or add.

5.      Develop A Solution: Come up with a solution that you think will solve or help a student with their issues.

6.      Select the Best Solution: Is the proposed solution is effective or feasible? Are there any obstacles that can prevent a group to receive the fund? What can you do to overcome the obstacles?


After Youíre Done, Share Your Findings: Connect your research to the book in a RATE paragraph. Connect your research to real life in your group flyer.
