Chamber group says ELL needs social, cultural curriculum

From the Nashville Business Journal: the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce's citizen panel on education believes that Nashville public schools' English Language Learner (ELL) program needs to expand beyond just language teaching and include social and cultural instruction.

"The panel expressed concern that the system's English language learning program for immigrant students is too narrow and doesn't address social skills and cultural knowledge."

"Now in its 12th year, the 12-member Citizens Panel for a Community Report Card is made up of citizens, social activists and members of the business community."
