Conceptualizing a comparative view of immigrant education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Because immigration requires adaptation to a new country, culture, and context, its study is inherently comparative. As a result, the work of comparative scholars represents an important contribution to literature related to immigrant education, especially as many countries around the world become more diverse culturally and linguistically through immigration (Welply, 2010). Rao (2010) acknowledges the burgeoning of research on the intersection of migration and education. A complex set of issues related to countries of origin and destination, as well as cultural community, influence the educational achievement of immigrants (Levels, Dronkers, and Kraaykamp, 2008). Although research of these issues from the perspective of the receiving country is valuable, comparative literature on immigrant education offers a new window into immigrant education that considers perspectives of both sending and receiving countries, as well as alternative approaches to educating immigrant children cross-nationally. Yet to date, little research has systematically examined the issues and theoretical frameworks that underlie comparative studies of immigrant education. The purpose of this paper is to develop a comparative conceptual framework for examining immigrant education through the analysis of immigrant education studies in comparative education journals. Specifically, we analyze articles from 1990 through 2010 from the following journals: Compare, Comparative Education, Comparative Education Review, the International Journal of Educational Development, and Prospects. In all, we review over 30 articles in these journals. The resulting model from our analysis offers a comprehensive framework to engage in future cross-national research of issues, policies, and practices related to immigrant education.
