School districts have a lot of flexibility when it comes to defining their ELL, ESL and ELD programs, and their educators and administrators decide what is the best way to serve the ELL group. On the other hand, the shortage of federal financial aid is an obstacle for schools when it comes to ESL students and low-income students. Much of the funding for these students is very low and is usually not enough to assist teachers with the training and resources necessary to become and continue as English language teachers. Legislation that No Child Left Behind has generally impacted the condition of education in the United States. With more focus on achieving measurable goals on standardized tests, ELL students went, and are still being left behind. Failure to succeed in these tests leads to an increase in school dropout by ELL students. Before NCLB (No Child Left Behind), there was a strong emphasis on bilingual education and the quality of English language programs. Under the NCLB, bilingual efforts yielded to a new ELL program more focused on English only in the United States. In addition, none of the problems that have caused a significant negative impact on ELL students, as well as segregation or inappropriate placement are discussed in these reviews.
