Immigrants in Appalachia: Educational Implications for Meeting the Needs of All Children
Cowdery, Joy R.
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v12 n1 2010
As rural Appalachian schools in Ohio in the United States struggle to overcome institutional bias and lack of understanding to accommodate the needs of the growing population of immigrant students from diverse countries, immigrant parents struggle to fit into a new cultural environment and to secure the best education for their children. This qualitative study of 29 southern Ohio counties examines the barriers and opportunities that each faces.
