Learning a new land : immigrant students in American society by Carola Suárez-Orozco( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 2,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on an interdisciplinary study that followed 400 newly arrived children from the Caribbean, China, Central America, and Mexico for five years, this book provides a compelling account of the lives, dreams, and frustrations of these youngest immigrants. Richly told portraits of high and low achievers are packed with unexpected ironies. When they arrive, most children are full of optimism and a respect for education. But poor neighborhoods and dull - often dangerous - schools can corrode hopes. The vast majority learn English - but it is the English of video games and the neighborhood, not that of standardized tests." "For some of these children, those heading off to college, America promises to be a land of dreams. These lucky ones have often benefited from caring mentors, supportive teachers, or savvy parents. For others, the first five years are marked by disappointments, frustrations, and disenchantment."--BOOK JACKET
Learning in the global era : international perspectives on globalization and education by Marcelo M Suárez-Orozco( )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An international gathering of leading scholars, policymakers, and educators takes on some of the most difficult and controversial issues of our time in this groundbreaking exploration of how globalization is affecting education around the world. The contributors, drawing from innovative research in both the social sciences and the neurosciences, examine the challenges and opportunities now facing schools as a result of massive migration flows, new economic realities, new technologies, and the growing cultural diversity of the world's major cities. Writing for a wide audience, they address such questions as: How do we educate all youth to develop the skills and sensibilities necessary to thrive in globally linked, technologically interconnected economies? What can schools do to meet the urgent need to educate growing numbers of migrant youth at risk of failure in societies already divided by inequality? What are the limits of cultural tolerance as tensions over gender, religion, and race threaten social cohesion in schools and neighborhoods alike? Bringing together scholars with deep experience in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, this work, grounded in rich examples from everyday life, is highly relevant not only to scholars and policymakers but also to all stakeholders responsible for the day-to-day workings of schools in cities across the globe
Writing immigration : scholars and journalists in dialogue( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bringing nuance, complexity, and clarity to a subject often seen in black and white, Writing Immigration presents a unique interplay of leading scholars and journalists working on the contentious topic of immigration. In a series of powerful essays, the contributors reflect on how they struggle to write about one of the defining issues of our time -- one that is at once local and global, familiar and uncanny, concrete and abstract. Highlighting and framing central questions surrounding immigration, their essays explore topics including illegal immigration, state and federal mechanisms for immigration regulation, enduring myths and fallacies regarding immigration, immigration and the economy, immigration and education, the adaptations of the second generation, and more."--Publisher's site

Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States and will comprise a quarter of the country's population by mid-century. The process of Latinization, the result of globalization and the biggest migration flow in the history of the Americas, is indeed reshaping the character of the U.S. This landmark book brings together some of the leading scholars now studying the social, cultural, racial, economic, and political changes wrought by the experiences, travails, and fortunes of the Latino population. It is the most definitive and comprehensive snapshot available of Latinos in the United States today. How are Latinos and Latinas changing the face of the Americas? What is new and different about this current wave of migration? In this pathbreaking book social scientists, humanities scholars, and policy experts examine what every citizen and every student needs to know about Latinos in the U.S., covering issues from historical continuities and changes to immigration, race, labor, health, language, education, and politics. Recognizing the diversity and challenges facing Latinos in the U.S., this book addresses what it means to define the community as such and how to move forward on a variety of political and cultural fronts. All of the contributions to Latinos are original pieces written especially for this volume

Central American refugees and U.S. high schools : a psychosocial study of motivation and achievement by Marcelo M Suárez-Orozco( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This ethnographic study documents and interprets key school, work, and family life issues in the lives and experiences of a sampling of recent immigrants from the war-torn Central American nations; and suggests a psychocultural theory of achievement motivation. Information was gathered from observation in two urban high schools, interviews with 50 Salvadoran, Guatemalan, and Nicaraguan students and their families, and their responses to the Thematic Apperception Test (tat). The following summary findings are reported: (1) in many respects, the Central Americans fit the ordinary American immigrant pattern; (2) escape from an environment of political terrorism and limited economic opportunity has a significant negative psychological effect on the students; (3) student perceptions of parental sacrifice are intertwined with their achievement motivation; (4) students used a dual frame of reference, comparing opportunities in their former home with opportunities in America, when assessing ongoing experiences and planning for the future; (5) student achievement aspirations are based on the desire to help others, as opposed to an individualistic concern for self-advancement and independence; (6) achievement motivation was also affected by a sense of guilt over their opportunity to leave Central America while other family members could not; and (7) students encountered educational barriers including "gatekeeping" techniques used in the schools, the need to work for a living, and legal problems. Seven tables of statistical data and three examples of adapted thematic apperception cards are included. A list of 195 references and an index are appended. (Fmw)

Education and equality by Danielle S Allen( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American education as we know it today - guaranteed by the state to serve every child in the country - is still less than a hundred years old. It's no wonder we haven't yet agreed exactly what role education should play in our society. In these Tanner Lectures, Danielle Allen brings us much closer, examining the ideological impasse between vocational and humanistic approaches that has plagued educational discourse and offering a compelling proposal to finally resolve the dispute"--
Humanitarianism and mass migration : confronting the world crisis by Marcelo M Suárez-Orozco( )

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is witnessing a rapid rise in the number of victims of human trafficking and of migrants--voluntary and involuntary, internal and international, authorized and unauthorized. In the first quarter of this century alone, more than 65 million people have been forced to escape home into the unknown. The slow-motion disintegration of failing states with feeble institutions, war and terror, demographic imbalances, unchecked climate change, and cataclysmic environmental disruptions have contributed to the catastrophic migrations that are placing millions of human beings at grave risk. Humanitarianism and Mass Migration fills a scholarly gap by examining the uncharted contours of mass migration. Exceptionally curated, it contains contributions from Jacqueline Bhabha, Richard Mollica, Irina Bokova, Pedro Noguera, Hirokazu Yoshikawa, James A. Banks, Mary Waters, and many others. The volume's interdisciplinary and comparative approach showcases new research that reveals how current structures of health, mental health, and education are anachronistic and out of touch with the new cartographies of mass migrations. Envisioning a hopeful and realistic future, this book provides clear and concrete recommendations for what must be done to mine the inherent agency, cultural resources, resilience, and capacity for self-healing that will help forcefully displaced populations"--Provided by publisher
Asians in the ivory tower : dilemmas of racial inequality in American higher education by Robert T Teranishi( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Highly respected scholar Robert Teranishi draws on his vast research to present this timely and compelling examination of the experience of Asian Americans in higher education. Asians in the Ivory Tower explores why and how Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are important to our nation's higher education priorities and places the study of AAPI college participation within a broad set of conditions through which all students must navigate as they pursue higher education. Teranishi captures the intersections of individual agency, social conditions, and organizational structures as synergetic forces that result in a range of postsecondary outcomes for subpopulations within the larger body of AAPIs. Transcending narrow generalizations about this understudied population, this seminal book debunks false stereotypes about AAPI students and their educational trajectories; offers a unique empirical perspective on racial stratification in higher education through case studies that mix quantitative data with narratives of lived stories; examines the educational experiences and routes to college for AAPIs, and examines broader issues around racial inequality and debates about affirmative action; captures the nuances and complexity of race, offering theoretical perspectives that can be applied to other populations. -- Provided by publisher
