Summary

This handbook helps readers to both understand and craft policies to aid the successful acculturation of immigrants in the US. It is an excellent road map for researchers in immigration and education, as well as educational and developmental psychologists, sociologists, economists, and public policy makers.

An immigrant from Russia, Dr. Grigorenko weaves her first-hand experiences and strategies into this unique text. It encompasses all available research on immigration and acculturation, from new information on bilingual education to studies of low-skill versus high-skill workers.

Key Topics:

  • Immigration and America, a current snapshot of US immigration policy and a demographic profile
  • Immigration and Education, including Pre-K education, K-12 education, higher education, adult education, and the labor market
  • Immigration and Incorporation into Society, with topics such as development, health, and policy implications
  • Immigration and America's future
