Made in America: Immigrant Students in Our Public Schools based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I found this novel to be eye opening in to the struggles that immigrant students endure everyday. Being a white, native-born American girl, I never thought twice about the equality in the schooling system growing up, because I always felt comfortable in my classrooms and I assumed that everyone else did as well. I feel as though no student, regardless of race, religion or culture should every show up to school in fear of being mocked for their lack of English proficiency or their clothing. I also feel as though schools as well as communities need to work harder to embrace diversity and make every culture feel welcomed. It’s our differences that help us grow as a nation and the great thing about America is the freedom and diversity that make up each and every community. If we could realize how beneficial a diverse group of students could be and the insight and perspectives they could offer in the classroom, I think everyone will grow.
