Preparing the Children of Immigrants for Early Academic Success

Robert Crosnoe
July 2013

This latest in a series of papers from the Migration Policy Institute by Robert Crosnoe explores which factors have the biggest impacts - both positive and negative - on the school readiness and early achievement of children from immigrant families, and examines three types of educational and health policy interventions that may reduce disparities between the children of U.S.-born parents and their immigrant counterparts:

  1.  Expanded access to early childhood education
  2.  Policies that promote young children's physical health
  3.  Efforts to forge family-school partnerships
