 they don't speak or understand. There is no sound educational or legal basis for this practice.

The objective of this lawsuit is to compel the State of California to assess the academic progress of its English Learners as required by the mandate of NCLB: States must assess limited English proficient students in “a valid and reliable manner” that includes (A) “reasonable accommodations”; and (B) “to the extent practicable, assessments in the language and form most likely to yield accurate data on what such students know and can do in academic content areas, until such students have achieved English language proficiency.”

The three law firms jointly retained by CABE and Californians Together are Burke, Williams and Sorensen, LLP, which specializes in education law, and the Law Offices of Hadsell & Stormer, Inc. and Law Offices of Marc Coleman, each specializing in civil rights litigation.

In an effort to provide full details of the lawsuit, CABE and Californians Together are co-hosting a press conference on (Thurs.), April 7, 2005, 11:30 AM at Burke, Williams & Sorensen, LLP, located at 611 W. Sixth Street Suite 2500 Los Angeles, CA 90017.
