Last week, senior associate Kevin Golembiewski published Compensatory Education Can Help Realize Promise to English Language Learners in the Legal Intelligencer. In the article, Kevin explained that the Equal Educational Opportunities Act (EEOA), a federal law that guarantees English Language Learners (ELLs) equal educational opportunity, allows courts to award ELLs compensatory education when school districts deny them equal opportunity. This is critical, Kevin stated, because compensatory-education awards can serve as a powerful tool not only for remediating discrimination against ELLs but also for incentivizing compliance with the EEOA.
