What People are saying about this

Grace Feuerverger
If we really care about refugee students in our classrooms, we must rethink and reshape our understanding of learning so that our teaching links more fundamentally to the experiences of refugees. Stewart's book responds to this call in a thoughtful and caring manner, providing an insightful classroom-oriented resource for educators and offering a balance of theory, research, and recommendations for practice.
Dr. Lloyd Axworthy
Stewart has done an exemplary job of bringing to light the difficulties refugee children experience upon resettlement.... A highly commendable piece of work.

The Rt. Honourable Michaelle Jean
Anyone forced to flee repression in their home country—anyone forced to leave everything behind—dies a little. When I was a child, my family and I had to gather all of our strength and what little we had to escape to Canada. We relied on the understanding and generosity of those who welcomed us. This book portrays those hardships and shows how the slightest kind gesture or compassionate word can make an enormous difference.
Michael Wessells
Essential reading for all educators. With passion and understanding, Stewart shows how young refugees see education as their hope for the future, yet are frequently failed or re-victimized by the education system. Filled with insight and practical suggestions, this book lights the way toward a more humane approach to education.

J. Lynn McBrien
Jan Stewart's work is at once scholarly, profoundly moving, and practical. It is helpful not only to Canadian educators and administrators, but also to those in other countries of resettlement.
