Listen To Part 4: Prince George’s Schools Welcome Undocumented Students By Respecting Their Past
This story is part of a larger project by Kavitha Cardoza, a participant in the 2019 National Fellowship, who is exploring the unprecedented challenges education professionals must address when they attempt to create and manage programs and services to support undocumented children.
Her other stories include:
The journey many undocumented children take to the United States is a harrowing one. The challenges continue when they enter public schools with new rules, a new language and new culture. Prince George’s County schools have made a conscious effort to welcome these students by respecting their past.
In the fourth part of our series on undocumented children, we look at how this approach helps improve kids’ health and academic outcomes.
