Summary

Educational Leadership of Immigrants highlights the educational practices and discourses around immigration that intersect with policies and laws, in order to support K-12 students’ educational access and families’ participation in schooling. Drawing primarily on research from the fields of educational leadership and educational policy, this book employs a case study approach to address immigration in public schools and communities; school leaders’ responses to ethical dilemmas; the impact of immigration policy on undocumented students; and the varying cultural, sociopolitical, legal and economic contexts affecting students’ educational circumstances. This book prepares current and future educational leaders to adapt to the changing terrain of U.S. demographics, education, and immigration policy.

Special features include:

  • case narratives drawn from real-life experiences to support the educational needs of immigrant students;
  • teaching activities and reflective discussion questions pertaining to each case study to crystallize leaders’ knowledge and facilitate their comfort levels in practice;
  • discussions of current challenges in education facing immigrant students, their families, educators, and school leaders, especially with changing immigration law.
