Abstract

In this article, I examine the institutional discrimination against immigrant students that exists within many school systems in the United States. Drawing on my own experiences with immigrant and refugee students, I highlight the impact the discrimination has on their learning experiences and self-identities and propose a solution to help local teachers encourage dialogue about race in the classroom. With the help of this training module, teachers will not only learn more about their own racial identities, but they will learn how to help other students grapple with racism and questions about race.
