Educating Latino Immigrant Students in the Twenty-First Century: Principles for the Obama Administration
Suarez-Orozco, Carola; Suarez-Orozco, Marcelo M.
Harvard Educational Review, v79 n2 p327-340 Sum 2009
In this essay, Carola Suarez-Orozco and Marcelo Suarez-Orozco address one of the most critical challenges facing President Obama's administration: meeting the educational needs of Latino and other immigrant children in the United States. The authors first provide a brief overview of past policies and agendas that have created a situation in which the educational and economic needs of immigrant children and their families remain grossly unmet. They then present three overarching principles to guide the Obama administration toward a more humane and effective policy agenda for immigrant children, and outline specific policy recommendations that reflect these principles to better serve this rapidly growing population and secure the future wellbeing of our nation. (Contains 5 notes.)
