New Article Highlights Findings from Research Alliance and Metro Center Study on How High Schools Can Better Serve Immigrant Youth


A new article in the Harvard Educational Review, co-authored by former Research Alliance Deputy Director Adriana Villavicencio, draws on findings from our study of the Internationals Network for Public Schools

"Drawing on case studies of two public high schools that exclusively serve immigrant students, authors Adriana Villavicencio, Chandler Patton Miranda, Jia-Lin Liu, and Hua-Yu Sebastian Cherng examine how educators frame the current political context and how this frame informs their collective approach to engaging with and supporting families. The study finds that these schools shifted norms of parental engagement by proactively forging relationships with families, cultivating alliances with community partners, and mediating within families around challenges related to work and higher education to benefit the communities they serve."
