    Migrant students are children whose families are agricultural workers migrating seasonally to harvest crops and who often work in the fields themselves. Because they move frequently during the school year, migrant students' schooling and living arrangements are frequently disrupted, their academic studies lack continuity, and they receive. This article presents a comparative examination of the educational underachievement of second-generation immigrants in Western Europe near the end of compulsory schooling, based on the – waves of the Programme for International Student Assessment survey. We propose a new measure of migrant educational penalty—revealing the relative position of .

    This study is significant as it offers additional research that may indicate student achievement is directly correlated to parental involvement. In turn, academic achievement may serve to motivate parents and families to continue or become more involved in school activities. Parents, students, and educators can use these findings. This study evaluated the efficacy of the computer-assisted intervention program known as Fast ForWord Language? in a sample of migrant students in Grades 1 through 6 who were native Spanish speakers. Fast ForWord Language? combines intensive training in multiple receptive English language skills with adaptive acoustic waveform lengthening and amplification to .

The Migrant Student Information Exchange (MSIX) is the technology that allows States to share educational and health information on migrant children who travel from State to State and who as a result, have student records in multiple States' information systems.

MSIX works in concert with the existing migrant. The reason, they conclude, is because of exposure to poor schoolmates. After controlling for racial differences in school poverty, the study found that segregation no longer predicts achievement gaps.

of the most relevant studies, children’s book distribution and ownership programs were shown to have positive behavioral, educational, and psychological outcomes. The study—Children’s Access to Print Materials and Education-Related Outcomes ()— was commissioned by Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), the largest.

China’s rural-urban migration presents a significant educational challenge. This study uses theories of segmented assimilation and school segregation to measure the assimilation and well-being of migrant children who attend either Beijing’s public schools or its informal migrant schools.

Controlling for other factors, we find poorer achievement and greater loneliness among migrant children. In addition to the barriers to educational achievement outlined above, many migrant children are subjected to the harmful disruptions of: Moving in the middle of a school year; Navigating a new school system and environment multiple times in a school year; Not having an adequate living space to focus on their studies.

SES, the Home Environment, and Children’s Academic Achievement. Past research has found significant differences in children’s cognitive achievement by home background before children begin kindergarten (Lee & Burkam, ).Parental responsiveness and discipline, and access to stimulating materials and experiences are key aspects of the home environment, with the latter.

Previous literature has demonstrated the disparity in educational achievement between migrant and local urban children (Wang & Jiang, ; Zhang, ), and explored different risk factors of low achievement among migrant children in China (Liu, Holmes, & Albright, ; Zhang, Gong, & Rao, ; Zhou & Wu, ).

However, few studies have. For example, studies have shown that migrant children are facing educational inequality in urban China (Ma et al., ; Wu & Zhang, ).

This article mainly builds on this body of research. There are two main mechanisms through which children's migration affects their education according to the literature (Liang & Chen, ). By Matthew Swayne. UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Mexican American mothers' formal immigration status affects the educational achievement of their children and even their grandchildren, according to a study written by Penn State and University of California, Irvine, sociologists and released by the US Project at Brown University.

The children of migrant farm laborers in the United States face numerous educational challenges because of frequent moves and economic hardship. Education World examines the special needs of migrant schoolchildren and tells how one school met those needs.

Included: An extensive list of resources about the nation's migrant farmworkers. Many academic and public policies promote rapid immigrant assimilation. Yet, researchers have recently identified an emerging pattern, known as the "immigrant paradox," in which assimilated children of immigrants experience diminishing developmental outcomes and educational achievements.

general quality are also good for migrant children and their educational opportunities. Peers also have a substantial influence on minority achievement. Concentration of migrant children in schools hinders their academic performance. Minority children exposed to classmates with better performance and higher educational aspirations tend to increase.

achievements of boys and girls are generally attributed to biological causes and/or to cultural and stereotypes (Klein, ). The last two decades have been devoted to addressing gender inequality in education (Nayar U ).

Some studies have shown an all – time low participation of women in education. Educators have therefore. According to a press release about the study, In some countries, such as China, having or more books in the home propels children years further in their education.
