Schools the world over are being transformed by growing numbers of immigrant-origin children. As schools face the challenge of educating linguistically, culturally, and racially diverse students, globalization imposes yet another set of demands on education. In this article we examine the varied pathways taken by immigrant-origin children. We outline some of the most critical contributors shaping their transition to new countries with a specific focus on education and schooling and explore some promising practices in a variety of national contexts and domains of immigrant life. (Contains 1 figure, 3 tables and 1 footnote.)
