An intimate look at the immigrant student

In her new book, Youth Held at the Border: Immigration, Education and the Politics of Inclusion, Lynch School of Education Associate Professor Lisa (Leigh) Patel invites readers to rethink assumptions about immigrant youth. Patel spent years working with an all-immigrant high school in Boston, conducting research on both young people and teachers. Her long-term relationships with immigrant youth and their families have helped her to interweave and intertwine their personal stories with important analysis about immigrant law, health, and education. Read an interview with Patel.
