About 20,000 students in California are suing the state and education workers because they claim they aren’t learning getting adequate English language instruction, according to The Denver Post.



The suit alleged that lack of instruction has meant some children had to be held back a grade or live with low proficiency scores because of a language barrier.

The Post reports attorney Mark Rosenbaum said in the filing that English learners fall behind without proper language lessons, even as school districts collect federal funds for providing such education.
