Supporting Refugee Students – Podcast Episode 181 | Classnotes Podcast 181
Classnotes Podcast (April 11, 2018) Refugee children are a specific group of immigrant children, many of whom have experienced some kind of trauma. Since 2005, three quarters of a million refugees have entered the United States. They make up an increasingly more diverse population in terms of their countries of origin and primary languages. And they face a number of school policies and practices that hinder their access to education. David Hinojosa, J.D., director of the IDRA EAC-South, and Dr. Hannah Sung, associate director of research and continuous improvement at the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium Inc., discuss those barriers. And they outline ways schools can pro-actively create a welcoming and positive learning environment for refugee students. The IDRA EAC-South supports districts across an 11-state region of the southeastern United States to put systems into place and prepare teachers to welcome all students, including refugee students, into their classrooms. Show length: 12:58 min.
