The Education and Migration project is coordinating a three-year research and fellowship initiative investigating the role of educational institutions and policy in the integration of children of immigrants. Under the leadership of sociologist Richard Alba of SUNY-Albany, we have assembled five bi-national (American and European) teams, staffed with senior principal investigators and research fellows (pre- and postdocs) from both the United States and the European country under comparison:
- School funding and tracking in New York City, USA, and Amsterdam, Holland.
- Navigating borders in schools and communities in California and Catalonia, Spain.
- The impact of timing, differentiation, and second chances in the United States and Great Britain.
- Promising schooling practices for immigrant children in the United States and Sweden.
- The transition to the labor market for Mexicans in the United States and North Africans in France.
