The Children of Immigrants at School: A Comparative Look at Integration in the United States and Western Europe
The Children of Immigrants at School explores the twenty-first-century consequences of immigration through an examination of how the so-called second generation is faring educationally in six countries: France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. In this insightful volume, which began as a project of the SSRC’s Working Group on Education and Migration, Richard Alba and Jennifer Holdaway bring together a team of researchers from both sides of the Atlantic to compare the educational achievements of children from low-status immigrant groups to those of mainstream populations in these countries, asking what we can learn from one system that can be usefully applied in another.
