Global Migration and Education makes a notable contribution to understanding the issues faced by immigrant children, their parents, and educators as they interact in school settings, and to identifying the common challenges to, and successes in, educational institutions worldwide as they cope with these issues. Global in scope, there are chapters from 14 countries. It will help educators and others involved in these complex processes to see beyond the notion of problems created and experienced by recently arrived young children. Rather, this volume provides many concrete suggestions deriving from the success stories and voices of teachers, parents, and students. It also offers evidence that diversity can be a condition for learning that, when understood, embraced, and supported, leads to rich learning opportunities for all involved that would not exist without diversity. All of the authors offer recommendations about educational policy and practices to address and ultimately improve the education of all children, including immigrant children.

The book is organized around five themes:
*Multiple Global Issues for Immigrant Children and the Schools They Attend;
*They Are Here: Newcomers in the Schools;
*Views and Voices of Immigrant Children;
*Far from Home With Fluctuating Hopes; and
*Searching for New Ways to Belong.

Intended for researchers, students, school professionals, and educational policymakers and analysts around the world in the fields of multicultural education, child psychology, comparative and international education, educational foundations, educational policy, and cross-cultural studies, this book is highly relevant as a text for courses in these areas.

"Global Migration and Education: Schools, Children, and Families is a collection of 19 studies from 14 countries and 29 authors. It reflects an extraordinary understanding of the complexities that new immigrant and refugee children around the world face in school in their host countries...Although its focus is on preschool and elementary immigrant children and their families, application can easily be made for children of all ages and grades."--Karen Loerke, Alberta Journal of Educational Research Summer 2009, Volume 55.2
