Educating Immigrants, Paperback / softback Book


Originally published in 1981. Immigrant children often have significant ethnic, linguistic and cultural differences from children of the host country and require special teaching arrangements.

This book is a country-by-country survey of this problem.

Each chapter begins by examining the general background to the problem, outlining the nature and extent of immigration in the country in question, and portraying the relationships between immigrant groups and the indigenous population.

Each chapter then considers how children's academic performance, social relations, self-esteem and academic and vocational expectations are affected by their immigrant status, and concludes by describing and analysing the special educational programmes adopted to help immigrant children.
