This webinar will outline how educators can serve undocumented youth and families in schools. Dr. Jeffries will outline legislation that allows undocumented youth to attend K-12 and higher education, such as AB540, the California Dream Act and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Furthermore, we will talk about best practices for teachers and administrators to encourage this population to make a successful transition to higher education.
Dr. Julián Jefferies received his MA in Applied Linguistics from the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and his PhD in Education from Boston College. His teaching experience includes teaching English and social studies at a unique high school for immigrant students in Boston Public Schools, teaching undergraduate courses for first-generation college students and graduate courses on the social context of education to pre-service teachers. He is interested in the daily lives of immigrant youth in schools and their representation in the media, especially the experiences of undocumented youth. His research looks to uncover how society as a whole and schools in particular deal with youth who have been historically underserved in education. He has published research that alerts educators in K-12 institutions and policy-makers on how to best serve undocumented youth in their schools.
