A preview of the Spring 2017 issue of Education Canada is available on the CEA site – a theme issue on welcoming newcomer students.

Check out the article The Immigrant (Dis)advantage (Volante, Klinger, siegel, Bilgili). From the conclusion: “Canada ranks significantly higher than the international average in the use of effective immigrant policies and has done a fairly good job of supporting the academic achievement of their immigrant student population. Nevertheless, the challenge of immigrant integration is still a pressing concern for national and provincial governments,[x] as evidenced by the performance disadvantages that are present in several Canadian provinces. Ultimately, it is up to provincial governments to study and reduce these achievement gaps. To date, our PISA results suggest we have much to celebrate, but also some cause for concern.”
