Immigration and Education: What Should K-12 Teachers, School Administrators, and Staff Know?
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v90 n1 p12-17 2017
We are currently living in an era of mass global migration. Therefore, it is a pertinent time to reflect on the challenges and the possibilities inherent in educating immigrant and refugee children. Because of the importance immigration has played in the history of the United States, it may be assumed that American K-12 teachers and school administrators understand the complexities surrounding the immigration process; however, this would be erroneous. This article aims to clarify and explain why educators need to gain awareness and become more knowledgeable about this topic.
