Immigrant Students and the Obstacles to Achievement
Stratton, Tamiko; Pang, Valerie Ooka; Madueno, Marcelina; Park, Cynthia D.; Atlas, Miriam; Page, Cindy; Oliger, Jennifer
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n3 p44-47 Nov 2009
This article describes composites of actual students, but examples of hardworking immigrant students and their families can be found in every state. Many young immigrants are negotiating their place in society. They believe in the American Dream and struggle with issues of poverty, language, cultural assimilation, and the desire to further their education. Vignettes of immigrant students demonstrate the benefits they bring to the United States and the obstacles they must endure to achieve their dreams.
