Refugee Children and Educational Support: What You Need to Know

Posted by Dynamic Language May 26, 2016

According to the U.S. State Department, since the year 1975, the U.S. has welcomed more than three million refugees across all 50 states. From 2006 through 2015, 622,169 refugees were resettled to the U.S. through the Refugee Admissions Program, and in 2015 alone, 69,933 refugees were resettled to America.


U.S. classrooms today have students who speak a variety of different languages.

This influx of refugees is likely to continue, as Secretary of State John Kerry recently announced that the Refugee Admissions Program is being expanded to further help vulnerable families from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

In part, it depends on how motivated the schools are to communicate with these potential students in their native language in addition to English, beginning early in the recruitment process.
