"Race for Results: Building a Path to Opportunity for All Students"
Children of immigrants are more likely to struggle in school and more likely to live in poverty than children of U.S. natives, a new Annie E. Casey Foundation report concludes.
Nationally, there are 18 million children who live with immigrant parents. The vast majority of those children, 88 percent, are U.S. citizens; at least 5 million of them have at least one parent who is undocumented.
The Casey Foundation report found that a smaller percentage of English-language learners from immigrant families score at or above proficient on state reading and math tests when compared with students from nonimmigrant families.
