How Immigration Enforcement Policies Are Impacting Students and Teachers Nationwide

  • Jul 26, 2018

As immigration enforcement intensifies around the country, schools see the impacts firsthand on a variety of stakeholders – students, families, educators, and communities. While many of these impacts have been documented anecdotally through the news media and on social media, researchers at University of California, Los Angeles have recently published a series of papers with detailed information highlighting the complex and sometimes unexpected impacts on school communities of immigration enforcement actions.

This webinar will cover topics including:

  • The impacts on social-emotional well-being of immigrant students and their non-immigrant peers
  • Socio-economic impacts after a family member is detained or deported
  • How increased levels of stress are affecting educators serving immigrant students
  • The impacts of these policies on professional relationships and a sense of community within the school setting

This webinar will feature discussion of the research from two of the researchers, Dr. Patricia Gándara, Research Professor of Education and Co-Director, Civil Rights Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles, UCLA and Shena Sanchez, Research Associate, UCLA.
