Between Mexico and New York City: Mexican Maternal Migration's Influences on Separated Siblings' Social and Educational Lives
Oliveira, Gabrielle
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v48 n2 p159-175 Jun 2017
There are negative consequences for children and youth when a primary caregiver leaves to migrate. However there are unforeseen experiences related to schooling. I compare how Mexican maternal migration has influenced the education experiences of the children left behind in Mexico and their siblings living in the United States. These microcontexts of where and how siblings live in Mexico and in New York City present us with a somewhat surprising picture of the different education experiences.
