To transform Maryland's education system to a world-class model for every student, the Blueprint for Maryland's Future established the Workgroup on English Learners (EL) in Public Schools. With a focus on those who have been historically underserved, this workgroup is charged with accelerating the academic achievement of more than 88,800 EL students.
