Education and Migration in the United States
As part of its work on migration and education, the SSRC's Migration Program assembled a working group to examine how educational institutions within the United States have responded to growing numbers of immigrant students as well as how immigrant families and communities navigate this country's educational system. The group met in New York in 2005 to deliver working papers on these topics, some of which will be published in an edited volume, and several members, including SSRC Program Director Jennifer Holdaway
, edited a special issue of Teachers College Record
(2009) looking at how the governance structures of education shape the opportunities open to children of immigrant families in the United States.
