Routledge Research in International and Comparative Education
This volume explores the shared expectations that education is a panacea for the difficulties that refugees and their receiving countries face. This book investigates the ways in which education is both a dream solution as well as a contested landscape for refugee families and students. Using comparative, cross-national perspectives across five continents, the editors and contributors critically analyze the educational structures, policies, and practices intended to support refugee youth transition from conflict and post-conflict zones to mainstream classrooms and schools in their new communities. Following the introduction, "The Contested Expectations of Education as a Panacea for Refugee Transitions" by Alexander W. Wiseman, Lisa Damaschke-Deitrick, Ericka Galegher, and Maureen F. Park, this book contains the following chapters: (1) Education as a Panacea for Refugee Integration? Evidence from Germany and the United States (Lisa Damaschke-Deitrick and Elizabeth Bruce); (2) The Educational Response to Syrian Displacement: A Professionalizing Field in a Politicized Environment (Elizabeth Buckner and Mozynah Nofal); (3) Teacher Preparation, Classroom Pedagogy, and the Refugee Crisis in National Education Systems (Alexander W.
