This episode of Information ELevated explores new data on English learners (ELs) with disabilities from the Office of English Language Acquisition's forthcoming 2018–20 Biennial Report. One out of seven (15.3%) identified K–12 ELs was also dually identified as having a disability in school year (SY) 2018–19. That number increased slightly to 15.5% in SY 2019–20. The episode also highlights the states with the highest and lowest percentages of ELs with disabilities.
