In the Nogales Unified School District (NUSD) and was taken to Federal Court. The plaintiff in the case are the parents of the students who were being affected and the defendants being the state of Arizona. The state failed to provide Limited English Proficient students with a proper program of adequate language, academic instruction, and fund at risk, low income, minority students. The plaintiffs took the stand that the state was in violation of the Equal Educational Opportunities Act (EEOA) which requires all public schools to provide LEP students with the proper instruction and resources to become proficient in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing in English. At his point in time, I was in middle school. This too was an irrelevant case to me, however, now, it is very apparent that AZ had to do something about the influx of illegal immigrant that enrolled their children into public schools. Due in large part to this case, AZ has enacted several laws and legislation to protect the rights and resources allotted to ELL students and the funding to the teachers covering these classes.
