The English Learners Success Forum, a project of the New Venture Fund, collaborates with field-leading researchers, district leaders, teachers, content creators, and education funders to raise the instructional rigor for students categorized as English learners (ELs) by improving the supply and implementation of EL-inclusive high-quality instructional materials. The group will elevate instruction for ELs by improving the supply of instructional materials inclusive of ELs by working directly with developers; partnering with districts, states, and organizations to advocate for more rigorous instruction for ELs by building informed demand; and ensuring that implementation of high-quality materials meets the varying needs of ELs by bolstering professional learning efforts.
