It’s a common refrain that the United States is a “nation of immigrants.” Yet, this credo is not always representative of the narratives told in schools or in the formation of classroom cultures. Fostering an inclusive pluralistic society entails schooling that develops the knowledge, skills, and understanding students need to navigate changing communities. Join us as we collaborate with Adam Strom, founder and executive director of Re-Imagining Migration, to discuss the ways in which schools can nurture cultures of belonging, create understanding, and promote unifying migration narratives.
