Many immigrant students in secondary school have problems succeeding because of the structures of the schools themselves.

This book profiles six students to help illuminate the needs of immigrant students. It details the structural obstacles that inhibit students’ success, and it describes ten priorities for designing effective teaching and learning contexts for immigrant students.

The author describes four promising programs in detail and makes recommendations in the areas of future program development and research.
