School Orientation for Refugee Parents: Best Practices

School Orientation for Refugee Parents: Best Practices

Research has told us that one of the greatest ways to help a child be more engaged and succeed in school is by involving their parents or guardians. As educators, social service providers, or immigrant/refugee advocates, what ways can we incorporate some basic lessons and strategies on the United States’ education system and ease the stress of adjustment for newly arrived refugee parents? Equipping parents with foundational parenting lessons, contact information for school representatives, and an understanding of local resources will help them to better support their child on the path to integration and success in school. In this webinar, 3 programs discuss their work to better orient refugee parents to the opportunities and challenges that their children will face in school.
