Education Unbordered: Immigrant, Refugee, Detained, and Undocumented Children and Families

Sun, April 30, 12:25 to 1:55pm, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Floor: Ballroom Level, 301 A&B

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


This session will focus on the individual and collective issues associated with immigration, refugee, detained, and undocumented children and families. How do we imagine schools as boundless in the context they engage and the opportunities they can afford for all children, and especially for children who enter the country? What is the status of research and how is it informing change for these children and their families? What is the role of schools, and what is needed in policy and practice to mediate the hardship and complexity of both the process and effect of policies? How are borders made more permeable and open for schools to effect change?
