About the Author:

Xue Lan Rong, a professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, is a first-generation immigrant whose native language is Chinese. As a classroom teacher, teacher educator, and educational sociologist, she has more than 25 years of teaching experience in public schools at various levels in the United States and China. She obtained her research experience via sociological, demographic, and pedagogical training. She has continually published in major sociological and educational journals and presented at national conferences on the topics of generation, race and ethnicity, national origins, gender, social class, and educational attainment and achievement of immigrant children since 1988, when she finished a dissertation on immigration and education at the University of Georgia.

Review:

"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

"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."--Marisa Castellano, Visiting Associate Professor (04/22/2008)"

"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 (04/22/2008)"
