APPROACHES TO EDUCATING REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS

This video shows how educators can address refugee issues, inside and outside the classroom. It also describes steps that school districts can take to ensure that immigrant families are included in their children’s education, and highlights students’ suggestions of ways that teachers can improve their schooling experiences.

IMMIGRATION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
