Nearly every community school system has faced the arrival of immigrant and refugee students, increasing the need for teachers to gain a better understanding of students' educational background and culture. "Understanding Your Refugee and Immigrant Students" is a valuable resource that provides useful information about the history, educational system, cultural beliefs, teacher-student relationships, and potential adjustment challenges of students from different countries. This resource is a result of a vast amount of research on 18 countries and includes interviews with students from these countries. The countries included are Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzogovina, Croatia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Iran, Laos, Liberia, Peru, Somalia, Sudan, and the Ukraine.
