European Sociological Review

“Public debates about immigration become more contentious by the day. Yet, far too often, this debate is based on myth, assumption, and conjecture rather than sound scientific evidence. With this book, Kao, Vaquera, and Goyette – first-rate scholars all – have provided the solid compendium of evidence that we so desperately need, sketching out the risks that the children of immigrants face in the American educational system and the remarkable resilience they demonstrate chasing the American Dream.”

Robert Crosnoe, University of Texas at Austin “In this insightful and gracefully written volume, Kao, Vaquera, and Goyette show there is no single story of immigration and education. There is important variation between and within immigrant groups that policy makers need to attend to, and variation along the lines of class, race, and language that we all need to be aware of as we consider which groups do better and why.”

Vivian Shuh Ming Louie, Harvard University “America is both an immigrant society and an education society. This important book intertwines these two important themes and brings together the latest scholarship on the topic. I highly recommend this book.”

Yu Xie, University of Michigan
