Product description

Global Migration and Education - Leah Adams and Anna Kirova
Published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates - 1st Edition

Paperback in Fine condition

This book is dedicated to Anna’s son, whose experiences as an immigrant child inspired her research into the area of the newly immigrated students and parents with whom she worked as a teacher.
Global Migration and Education makes a notable contribution to understanding the issues faced by immigrant children, their parents, and educators as they interact in school settings, and to identifying the common challenges to, and successes in, educational institutions worldwide as they cope with these issues.
With chapters from 14 countries, this book will help educators and others involved in these complex processes to see beyond the notion of problems created and experienced by recently arrived young children. It provides many concrete suggestions deriving from the success stories and voices of teachers, parents, and students and also offers evidence that diversity can be a condition for learning which, when understood, embraced, and supported, leads to rich learning opportunities for all involved that would not exist without diversity.
With recommendations about educational policy and practices to address and ultimately improve the education of all children, including immigrant children, this book is organized around five themes: ‘Multiple Global Issues for Immigrant Children and the Schools They Attend’, ‘They Are Here: Newcomers in the Schools’, ‘Views and Voices of Immigrant Children’, ‘Far from Home With Fluctuating Hopes’ and ‘Searching for New Ways to Belong’.
Intended for researchers, students, school professionals, and educational policymakers and analysts around the world in the fields of multicultural education, child psychology, comparative and international education, educational foundations, educational policy, and cross-cultural studies, this book is highly relevant as a text for courses in these areas.
