Survival, Adjustment, and Acculturation of Newly Immigrated Families with School-Age Children: Cases of Four Korean Families
Cho, Eun Kyeong; Shin, Sunghee
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v2 n1 p4-24 Jan 2008
The number of Korean migrants in the United States has steadily increased in recent years. Korea has struggled with a new social phenomenon: "exodus Korea." Despite its potential impact on the sending and receiving countries, the issue of the increasing number of Korean migrants has not received much research attention in its impact on schools and society. Four Korean migrant families' experiences in the United States were examined. Data were collected via participation, observation, interviews, and orally told stories. Although the families had some common goals for life in the United States, the traits of each family's life in the United States displayed their own uniqueness. Areas that require more research and practical sensitivity were discussed for addressing the issues migrant families face. (Contains 3 tables and 6 footnotes.)
