The Cultural Psychology of Immigration
  • Immigration is “of and for” the Family
  • Separations and Re-Unifications
  • Transnationalism of the Heart: by the end of the decade remittances surpassed 350 billion dollars –more than double the combined world international aid-India received $27 billion, China $25.7 billion, Mexico $25 billion, Philippines $17 billion (World Bank, 2008)
growing up in the shadows
Growing Up In the Shadows
  • Nearly 30% of young adults in the US are either immigrants or children of immigrants (Rumbaut & Komaie, 2010)
  • Over 1.1 million immigrant youth are ‘Dreamers’ (unauthorized immigrants)
  • Over 4 million 2nd generation children and youth live in mixed documentation families (with parents or siblings who are undocumented)

  • The Global Achievement Gap
education for globalization three principles
Education for Globalization: Three Principles
  • Education for “doing” and “living” well – the flourishing ideal of Eudaemonia
  • Education for civic engagement, belonging, and cultural citizenship
  • Education for the transition to the ever more globally integrated labor market

Children growing up today are more likely than in any previous generation to face a life of working and networking, loving and living with others from different national, linguistic, religious, and racial backgrounds. In the U.S. today minorities make up 46.5 percent of the under 18 population, 10 states are now minority majority states in their under 18 population (HI, NM, CA, TX, AZ, FL, GA, MD, MS, NV AND D,C) -- working across cultural and linguistic boundaries will hence forth have a huge premium
