Go beyond the Classroom to Help Immigrant and Refugee Students Succeed
Kugler, Eileen Gale; Price, Olga Acosta
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n3 p48-52 Nov 2009
Strengthening the entire family is a fundamental goal of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Caring Across Communities initiative, administered by the Center for Health and Health Care in Schools. Many immigrant and refugee students have lived through traumatic situations, but they benefit from being part of close-knit families and caring communities. Building a trusting relationship with parents and extended families, helping them adjust to their new life, is a critical key to improving the mental health and the academic success of these students.
