Education of Immigrant Students: Issues and Answers. Symposium Series, 5.
Wolfgang, Aaron, Ed.
Questions that confront teachers, administrators, and the many others involved in the education of immigrants are explored here by individuals with diverse backgrounds and points of view. The papers in this volume are written to examine a variety of issues in depth and to provide answers in relation to the education of immigrant students. While most of the contributors are speaking to the experiences of the immigrants in English speaking Canada, many of the issues are the same in French speaking regions. The papers deal with a broad range - from moral, philosophical, and ethical issues to issues in curriculum testing, counseling, teacher training, and multi-culturalism. There are some common threads running through the papers: the commonalities are in stressing the importance of, and ways of, promoting a positive self concept or identity among immigrants within a multicultural context, and seeking ways of facilitating communication between educators and immigrant students. The achievement of these common goals should benefit not only the immigrant but the native born students as well. (Author/AM)
