College Preparedness and President Obama’s Inauguration Speech
In today’s Inauguration speech, President Obama made some declaratory statements about immigrant students and why they must be protected in the midst of the greater immigration challenges the USA is facing as a country. Take a look at excerpts:
“Our journey is not complete, …until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity, until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our work force rather than expelled from our country.”
While I’d bet he might have only been thinking of adult students, we know that K-12 immigrant students must have the same protections. And we must prepare them for the same rigors of college and career readiness as any other child in our charge.
