Penn State’s Center for Education and Civil Rights & Penn State Law’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights held a timely discussion about immigration.

Pennsylvania’s K-12 schools enroll an estimated 180,000 students from families where one parent lacks legal authorization. Speakers provided a description of the recent developments in immigration enforcement, and discussed implications for schools. The program focused on educators’ rights and responsibilities regarding immigration, existing federal guidance for children from immigrant families, and offered ideas for communicating with families affected by these policies and achieving a safe learning environment for all children.

Who attended: Educators, counselors, and administrators in area school districts and charter schools. Preservice educators were also welcome.
