As the language minority and immigrant population grows all across the country, the ELL market presents increasing and significant opportunities for parent/teacher stores, publishers, and other suppliers to schools. This practical webinar will provide an overview of the ELL market and the urgent needs of this burgeoning and at-risk student population, based on the presenter's recent market research, "The 2011-2012 Course Crafters Guide to the ELL Market."
