Growing up with undocumented parents: The challenges children face

from EdCentral

The percentage of children in the U.S. with immigrant parents is rising. These children account for around a quarter of all children under age 8. Around 30 percent of these children grow up with undocumented parents, often in "mixed-status" families where at least one child has full legal status and at least one parent does not. So, while the vast majority — nearly 80 percent — are themselves native-born, U.S. citizens, their undocumented parents face the risk of deportation. Because of their parents' status, many of these American children enter schools with unique needs that differ from children of immigrants generally and U.S. children overall. Given the country's shifting demographics, these distinctions are inescapably important for U.S. educators. more
