Education, Immigration and Migration Summary

Education, Immigration and Migration: Policy, Leadership and Praxis for a Changing World by Khalid Arar

Global Migration has changed the practice of educational leaders, policy makers, students, teachers and community members. This book traces this worldwide shift through research-based chapters that touch on both local idiosyncrasies and dynamics common across many contexts. Education, Immigration and Migration identifies issues educational leaders face as they seek to lead schools and school systems experiencing immigration and better understand their current strategies for improvement. The chapters shed light on the poorly understood relationship between educational leadership and refugee populations by giving a deeper appreciation of the scope and nature of issues at local, national and transnational levels. Each chapter offers new ways in which practitioners, policy-makers and scholars can think about complex dilemmas such as the implementation of equitable and democratic values, and difficulties involved in adapting organization and culture. Given its cross-national interdisciplinary approach, this book will prove invaluable for educational leaders, scholars and policymakers alike.

Education, Immigration and Migration Reviews

A must read for anyone wanting to delve into the complex issues related to how educators and community leaders can create welcoming and inclusive environments for migrants, refugees, and immigrants! This edited book provides glimpses into the laws, regulations, and praxis related to displaced peoples in multiple countries including Britain, Canada, Sweden, Turkey, Spain, Syria, and the United States. All authors, who are members of the global educational leadership and research community, focus in some way on issues of leadership and equity related to serving the most vulnerable populations. To do so, in the 15 chapters of this book, these authors offer multiple perspectives that help us both gain an overview of the challenges presented when policy and praxis collide and begin to understand some ways in which leaders can promote high expectations, equity, and social justice in today's changing and turbulent times. -- Carolyn M Shields
This book studiously exposes one of the most sombre global problems facing us as educators, wherever we work. The editors bring together a powerful collection of socially active authors focused on raising awareness of the plight created by forced migration. The book will open your eyes and tug your heartstrings. Read it and you'll want to know what you can do to help. -- Allan Walker
Arar, Bogotch and Brooks have introduced us to authors with deep insights into numerous professional experiences with immigration, refugees, and displaced peoples of the world. This edited book truly represents the challenging work of leading educators who turn struggles into improved practices intended to address issues of social justice among disenfranchised populations. -- Anthony H. Normore
What a timely and thoughtful resource to help educational leaders meet the needs of all students and families in our schools - all over the world! -- Margaret Grogan
There was never a time when we had a greater need for an edited volume such as this. With a stellar group of authors, it should prove essential reading for 21st century educators who aim to provide culturally and linguistically responsive education to immigrant and refugee populations worldwide. Highly recommended. -- Lauri Johnson
