Guideline for Policy Makers


10. Policy Implications


Policies should take into account the various educational partners.

  1. Serious consideration needs to be given to design programs and initiatives with strategies as diverse as the immigrant students they seek to serve.
  2. Have in mind the design of interventions focusing on improving educational, social and cultural opportunities for immigrant students, as well as for their families – address the educational issues without forgetting their family contexts.
  3. Work with multiple city agencies to bridge gaps at reaching at immigrant students.
  4. Design policies aimed at enabling school organizations to engage with the issue of integration of immigrant students as a top priority of their educational projects.
  5. Institutions benefit from hearing the voices of all individuals. Support immigrant students to engage with local civic processes – for example, school board decisions, local elections, and so on.
  6. Work on policies and programs to encourage preschools and elementary schools to offer dual immersion or dual language instruction.
