The Educational Experiences of Refugee Children in Countries of First Asylum debt

The histories that resettled refugee children bring to classrooms in the United States are multiple and varied. Refugees come from many countries and many socioeconomic, political, linguistic, and ethnic backgrounds. While their migration paths are unique and reasons for resettlement diverse, most refugees have experienced extended stays in refugee camps or urban areas within countries of first asylum. The previous experiences of refugee children affect the way they experience school and the relationships they form with teachers and peers. However, the histories of resettled refugee children are often hidden from their teachers and other school staff in the United States by factors such as language barriers, privacy concerns, cultural misunderstandings, and stereotypes. >
