Immigrant Students in the Trump Era: What We Know and Do Not Know
Nguyen, Chi; Kebede, Maraki
Educational Policy, v31 n6 p716-742 Sep 2017
The 2016 U.S. presidential election marked a time of deep political divide for the nation and resulted in an administrative transition that represented a drastic shift in values and opinions on several matters, including immigration. This article explores the implications of this political transition for immigrants' K-16 educational experiences during President Trump's administration. We revisit literature on school choice and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)--two policy areas where the most significant changes are expected to occur--as it pertains to immigrant students in the United States. We identify areas where there is limited scholarship, such as the unique educational experiences of various minority immigrant subgroups, the interplay between race and immigration status, and immigrant students in rural areas. Recommendations are made for policy and research.
