Immigrant Children and Youth in the USA: Facilitating Equity of Opportunity at School
Adelman, Howard S.; Taylor, Linda
Education Sciences, v5 n4 p323-344 Dec 2015
A great deal has been written about immigrant children and youth. Drawing on work done in the USA, this paper focuses on implications for school improvement policy and practice. Discussed are (1) the increasing influx of immigrants into schools, (2) different reasons families migrate, (3) concerns that arise related to immigrant students, (4) prevailing school practices for addressing immigrant concerns, (5) a framework for broadening what schools and communities do, and (6) policy implications, cautions, and recommendations for embedding immigrant concerns into a unified, comprehensive, and equitable system of student and learning supports.
