Supporting Immigrant and Undocumented Students (Video)

      How do educators make sure they are serving their immigrant and undocumented students well? Natasha Quiroga, a lawyer who directs the Parental Readiness and Empowerment Program at the Washington, D.C.-based Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, hears that question all the time. In the last three years, as larger numbers of immigrant students seek education in districts that haven't traditionally served such populations (and as anti-immigrant rhetoric and DACA's precarious fate stoke fear among families), Quiroga has seen an uptick in requests from educators and parents related to the resources and frameworks students need to learn—and what schools are legally required to provide. In a video interview, she expands on the advice she shares with educators around best practices for immigrant students and families.
      What are some of the gaps schools have when it comes to supporting immigrant students and families?
      What are some best practices for schools that want to serve immigrant students?
      What can leaders and teachers do to support immigrant students and families?
