Increasing Knowledge Related to the Experiences of Undocumented Immigrants in Public Schools
Lad, Kaetlyn; Braganza, Desiree
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v24 p1-15 Jan 2013
This article describes the experiences of school personnel working with undocumented immigrants in public schools and the opinions and attitudes of school personnel. The resulting propositions are: (1) Undocumented students and their parents live with a great deal of psychological stress on a daily basis; (2) Undocumented students face multiple academic challenges and their families have difficulty maneuvering through the US education and social system to access services; and (3) The lack of adequate attention to the needs of undocumented students and their families is both a civil rights and human rights issue. (Contains 7 tables.)
