Providence Public Schools is agreeing to provide English language services to roughly eight-thousand students who currently lack fluency.  The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Rhode Island made that announcement on Monday, after a federal probe found violations of the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974.  Officials say the district will properly identify and place English-learning students when they enroll in the district's 41 schools and secure a sufficient number of teachers who are certified in English Second Language.
