Mentoring can help immigrant kids
from Pacific Daily News
There is a strong relationship between globalization, immigration and education. The new global economy requires highly skilled young people that will be living in and contributing to an increasingly diverse society and an interdependent community of nations. Bilingual, biliteracy and multicultural skills are demanded for more individuals, institutions, communities and countries. In the U.S., between 1993 and 2003, the immigrant populations escalated: 13 percent of the U.S. population is foreign-born immigrants, which contained about 20 percent of the K-12 school-aged immigrant populations and five percent of Limited English Proficient students.
