Morland, Lyn; Ives, Nicole; McNeely, Clea; Allen, Chenoa – Migration Policy Institute, 2016

Sugarman, Julie – Migration Policy Institute, 2016
With nearly 10 percent of U.S. elementary and secondary students less than fully fluent in English, many school districts are struggling to develop the capacity to meet the needs of these nearly 5 million children from immigrant and refugee backgrounds.

Crosby, Danielle A.; Dunbar, Angel S. – Migration Policy Institute, 2012

Capps, Randy, Ed.; Fix, Michael, Ed. – Migration Policy Institute, 2012
The child population in the United States is rapidly changing and diversifying--in large part because of immigration. Today, nearly one in four US children under the age of 18 is the child of an immigrant. While research has focused on the largest of these groups (Latinos and Asians), far less academic attention has been paid to the changing Black…
