East Boston, MA - 10/26/17 - Angel Miguel Salinas Guevara (cq) raises his hand in the kindergarten Sheltered English Immersion program at the Patrick J. Kennedy Elementary School in East Boston. Across East Boston, schools are debunking a long-held misconception that serving large populations of English language learners is an impediment to academic success. Instead more than half of the schools have achieved the highest level in the state's school accountability system, with a few receiving commendations from the state. The path to success was not easy for some of the schools, causing them to rethink the way they teach in the classrooms and creating specialized programs to help students pick up the English language faster. Many schools also stepped up efforts to engage parents, even offering them English language classes so they could more fully participate in the schools.
