Our framework presents migration as an opportunity. Therefore, our Educational Framework prepares educators and institutions to respond to the demands and opportunities that arise with changing demographics associated with human migration flows in the US and beyond. We do not tell teachers what to do nor what exactly they should teach on a day by day basis. Rather, we seek to shed light on some of the most transformative questions educators may ask as they interrogate and recast their practice to serve a growing number of immigrant-origin students and their peers.
For educators working in schools, museums, libraries, and communities interested in preparing immigrant-origin students, their families, and peers to participate fully in contemporary societies this framework stands as an invitation to re-frame migration not merely as a pressing challenge but mostly as an opportunity to re-imagine a new approach to education—one destined to benefit all.
Introducing the Re-Imagining Migration Framework
Our framework was developed by Veronica Boix-Mansilla in collaboration with Carola Suárez-Orozco and Adam Strom. Reach out to us if you are interested in learning about professional learning opportunities based on the framework for your organization.
