About this product
- DescriptionCurrently, linguistic mirity students - students who speak a language other than English at home - represent 21% of the entire K-12 student population and 11% of the college student population. Bringing together emerging scholarship on the growing number of college-bound linguistic mirity students in the K-12 pipeline, this ground-breaking volume showcases new research on these students' preparation for, access to, and persistence in college. Other than studies of their linguistic challenges and writing and academic literacy skills in college, little is kwn about the broader issues of linguistic mirity students' access to and success in college. Examining a variety of factors and circumstances that influence the process and outcome, the scope of this book goes beyond students' language proficiency and its impact on college education, to look at issues such as student race/ethnicity, gender, SES, and parental education and expectations. It also addresses structural factors in schooling including tracking, segregation of English learners from English-fluent peers, availability and support of institutional personnel, and collegiate student identity and campus climate. Presenting state-of-the-art kwledge and mapping out a future research agenda in an extremely important and yet understudied area of inquiry, this book advances kwledge in ways that will have a real impact on policy regarding linguistic mirity immigrant students' higher education opportunities.
