State educators say No Child Left Behind leaves behind English language learner students

"States are screaming for more flexibility in testing students with disabilities and students for whom English is a second language."

"Latino Advocates say part of that fairness is recognizing Latino students have uniqueness based on ethnicity, language preference, socioeconomic status and how long they have been in the United States."

"'We are no longer invisible as a Latino community, but diversity within the Latino population is something we need to draw attention to across the Unites States,' said Paz."
