It takes roughly five to seven years for a child to become fluent in the English Language. Struggling English Language Learners are facing devastating consequences because they are at greater risk of academic failure in school, early school dropout, and eventually lower-paid employment or unemployment (Dixon, 2014, p. 414). They are becoming discouraged because they are not meeting the New York State Common Core Standards. This literature explains the strengths and weakness our English Language Learners are facing in a plethora of schools. There needs to be a knowledge base about cultural diversity in curriculum, students well-being and the community. My research focused on surveying fourteen teachers in the Grey Elementary Schools K-5, focusing on the best practices and strategies for English Language Learners to become academically successful.
