Brown University is holding a conference on the “Immigrant Paradox”, the notion that in spite of the challenges faced by immigrant children, research shows better behavioural and educational results than children of immigrants who have been in the United States for generations but that any developmental gains may deteriorate as children become more integrated in US culture.
The Immigrant Paradox in Education and Behavior: Is Becoming American a Developmental Risk? will be held from 8:30am to 5pm at Pembroke Hall, Room 305, March 6-7, 2009.
The conference is open to all. For more information, visit the conference website.
