Immigrant and Refugee Students in Canada
Recent immigrants and refugees—both children and their families—often struggle to adapt to Canadian education systems. For their part, educators also face challenges when developing effective strategies to help these students make smooth transitions to their new country.
In Immigrant and Refugee Students in Canada, researchers join educators and social workers to provide a thorough and wide-ranging analysis of the issues at the preschool, elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels. By understanding these issues within the unique Canadian context, educators can work more effectively with newcomers trying to find their way.
This book pursues three lines of inquiry:
- What are the main challenges that immigrant and refugee children and families face in the Canadian education system?
- What are the common aspects of successful intervention?
- What can we learn from the narratives of researchers, educators, social workers, and other frontline workers who work with immigrant and refugee families?
