UnidosUS – Title III Funding Fact Sheet: The English learner (EL) population grew by 11.35% between 2009 and 2016, but Title III funding—the only federal funding stream dedicated to the teaching of ELs—has decreased by 9.4% since 2009. Latin/o/a/x are overrepresented among ELs, making up nearly 4 million English learners in K-12 public schools. In order to ensure that millions of Latin/o/a/x students are not denied a high-quality education and inhibited from contributing to the United States economy, Title III funding must increase.
