Call for 2017 INTESOL Journal Special Issue Manuscripts: ESSA's Impact on Indiana ELLs

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, adopted in 2001 and dissolved in 2015, is now behind us. This 14-year timespan impacted an entire school generation of English Learners (ELs) and its educators. As we look to the new federal law of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we hope that lessons learned during NCLB will inform language policy and practices that support the multiple identities of our ELs. For this special issue, we invite manuscripts that address ESSA in the local, regional, or national arena. Articles may be historical, relating  ESSA to the contemporary context.

Submission Deadline: March 17, 2017

Submit a Special Issue Manuscript using the Submit a Manuscript! button in the Submission Guidelines section to the right.

Please direct any questions or inquiries to the Special Issue Editor, Trish Morita-Mullaney at
