Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools in North Carolina this year have met all of its state targets for English-language learners, including proficiency goals on reading and math assessments. Improvements are the result of more than 10 years of efforts that include earlier identification of students who are "Limited English Proficient" and increased teacher training. "It empowers the students to have someone who can understand and communicate with you," said teacher Gabriela Camacho, who delivers most of her instructions in Spanish as her first-grade students transition to English proficiency.
