This chapter examines the obstacles to the academic performance of immigrant students. It treats the family as the center of immigration; reveals just how dislocating immigration becomes to its form and coherence; shows how school policies and practices undermine the immigrant family in unanticipated ways; and clarifies how the family elements of the immigration experience intersect negatively with the structure of the educational system.

Keywords:   immigrant families, family life, education, immigrant students
