"Rong and Preissle have again done an impressive job of combining current census and other data to paint a detailed picture of immigration to the U.S., and of making the case for an equitable approach to schooling all of America’s children. They provide practical recommendations for teachers and administrators on how to use this knowledge to make informed decisions about programs and practices, especially in the area of assessment and other accountability measures."

"A comprehensive and important examination of the education of immigrant students in the U.S. Rong and Preissle’s focus on cultural and linguistic transformation across four generations is truly unique."

Stacey J. Lee, Professor of Educational Policy Studies
University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Rong and Preissle’s first edition has become a standard reference for the education of immigrant students. The evolution and expansion of their research to encompass transnational and transcultural theoretical frameworks is cutting edge and absolutely timely given the changing, almost discursive nature of immigration within an increasingly complicated and shifting world context."

A. Lin Goodwin, Associate Dean and Professor of Education
Teachers College, Columbia University
