"Fourth-wave immigration, with its vast economic, ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and religious diversities, have brought new dynamics into the existing social and demographic structures and added both opportunities and challenges to educational systems in North Carolina, a Southern U.S. state with the fastest growing rate of foreign-born population in the nation in 1990-2010 and unique geopolitical history.This book brings together 17 scholars who have extensive experience working with immigrants in North Carolina and represent a wide range of educational expertise. Together, their studies illustrate the intersections between historical contexts (geopolitical, historical constraints), structural factors (power, policies and laws, institutions and organization), cultural issues (philosophies, ideologies, identities, beliefs, values, and traditions), and immigrant students’ characteristics on the development of educational practices, policies, reforms, and resistance.divMost importantly, studying how North Carolina education systems and actors adapt to meet the challenges may offer valuable opportunities for researchers to understand the transformation of educational systems in other new gateway states. Collectively, studies in this book deconstruct the framework of the traditional hierarchical assimilation and linguisticism policies in recasting the concept of becoming Americans in the New South. The authors utilize frameworks that recognize the structural barriers that disadvantage immigrants in new gateway states but also position youth, families, and communities as possessing and utilizing valuable resources to promote educational access and achievement. In this sense, this book contributes significantly to major contemporary empirical and theoretical debates relating to educating immigrant children. It is our hope that this critical dialogue will continue at a national platform to promote discussion of these timely issues."div div>

Education is a crucially important social institution, closely correlated with wealth, occupational prestige, psychological well-being, and health outcomes. Moreover, for children of immigrants – who account for almost one in four school-aged children in the U.S. – it is the primary means through which they become incorporated into American society. This insightful new book explores the educational outcomes of post-1965 immigrants and their children. Tracing the historical context and key contemporary scholarship on immigration, the authors examine issues such as structural versus cultural theories of education stratification, the overlap of immigrant status with race and ethnicity, and the role of language in educational outcomes. Throughout, the authors pay attention to the great diversity among immigrants: some arrive with PhDs to work as research professors, while others arrive with a primary school education and no English skills to work as migrant laborers. As immigrants come from an ever-increasing array of races, ethnicities, and national origins, immigrant assimilation is more complex than ever before, and education is central to their adaptation to American society. Shedding light on often misunderstood topics, this book will be invaluable for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses in sociology of education, immigration, and race and ethnicity.

Desert Roots is the true story of the author's parents who, after being self-imposed exiles from their native Iran for 33 years, decided to leave the United States and return to their homeland. In this family biography, Shavarini explores the issues that brought them to America-and eventually drew them back home again. The experiences of her family will help readers understand the struggles many Iranians-those living in Iran and abroad-have faced. Threaded throughout the story are universal themes that connect readers to the many characters within: a mother trying to raise her children in a new country, a father disappointed in what life ultimately has in store for him, immigrant children ashamed of their roots, and proud nationalist ancestors. Themes of loss, regret, and tragedy, as well as perseverance and resilience, are part of this book's broader narrative.

This in-depth examination: debunks the simplistic "culture of poverty" argument that is often used to explain the success of Asian Americans and the failure of other minorities; illustrates how Asian Americans, in different social and economic contexts, negotiate ties to their families and ethnic communities, construct ethnic and racial identities, and gain access to good schooling and institutional support; offers specific recommendations on how to involve first-generation immigrant parents and ethnic community members in schools to foster academic success; and looks at implications for developing educational policies that more fully address the needs of second-generation children."--BOOK JACKET.

The authors summarize current information on socioeconomic, demographic, linguistic, and educational characteristics of immigrant students aged 5-18 to help you better assess the impact of these diverse groups on your school or district. This book identifies potential problems and challenges associated with educating our immigrant students. It considers the educational implications surrounding these questions: Who are the current immigrants? How are they different from previous immigrants and from one another? What is their level of English language acquisition? How does the educational achievement of immigrants, their native-born children, and their grandchildren compare with that of native-born American students? Rong and Preissle examine immigration and how it interacts with race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, social class, and residential location, as addressed by schooling theories and practices. The authors assess the effectiveness of today's policies and present conclusions and recommendations with implications for future policy and practice. This book is a valuable resource for anyone involved in making education policy. It offers crucial insights for all educators working with immigrant students.
