English Learners (ELs) Who Are American Indian and/or Alaska Native (AI/AN)
The Office of English Language Acquisition (OELA) has created two fact sheets that profile American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) students: AI/AN English learners (ELs) and ELs who are AI/AN. Both fact sheets illustrate the states with the highest percentages of AI/AN ELs, as well as the states that have Native American and/or Alaska Native languages among their five most common EL languages. Included in both are also the most common Native American and/or Alaska Native languages and the number of ELs reported to be speaking each language. These fact sheets provide accessible handouts with information on the state of AI/AN ELs in the U.S. schooling system.
