As stated above, they are largely low SES and ELL. Ethnically, they cover Somali, Filipino, Chinese, Latino, African-American, Vietnamese, Cham, Mien, and European descents. This is only a smattering of the ethnicities at our school, those that I know in my class that came to me quickly. We have students who have at most 15 other speakers of their language in our city, e.g. my former kindergartner who spoke Soninke, a language spoken by only 1 million people world wide. These students need far greater exposure to the language surrounding a large number of social content areas, from history and culture, to science and economics. The basic language that English only students pick up from casual conversations, both engaged in and overhead with adults, is present in their home language and needs to be supplemented in school.
