Hi:
Do any of you know where I would go to get information on what it was like for Ell students in the 60's and 70's in school before all the lawsuits and all the support we have now? I have to write a research paper for a Esol class.
Thank you any help would be appreciated.

I will only respond from personal experience. I came to the states from the Philippines as a toddler. My mom spoke no English. Dad spoke English. There was no ELL support for me in elementary school that I remember. In 1st grade, since I never spoke, everyone thought there was something wrong with me (perhaps speech issues, they thought). The school decided to hold me back a year. Mom didn't know any better so she went along with it. So all through school I was always incredibly shy, and never received any kind of ELL support. I just sort of struggled my way through each grade, just barely passing. I am really glad things have changed now for ELL kids.

You could check out the incidents of ELLs being diagnosed as mentally retarded. That was somewhat common then, because they didn't speak the language and testing didn't always take that into account.

Look at some of the law suits filings and transcripts of expert testimony. Have fun in the law library!
