Summary:
The focus of this edited volume is on immigration's effect on schooling and the consequential aspect of illegal immigration's effect. To understand immigration (legal and undocumented) and K-16 education in Asia, Europe, and the US is to situate both within the broader context of globalization. This volume presents a timely and poignant analysis of the historical, legal, and demographic issues related to immigration with implications for education and its interdisciplinary processes.
