Dr. Alejandra Rincón publishes chapter in Springer's Handbook on Promoting Social Justice in Education.

We are excited to share Dr. Alejandra Rincón's new publication entitled “Immigrants’ Efforts to Access Public Schools and Higher Education in the United States”. The chapter is part of Springer’s Handbook on Promoting Social Justice in Education. 

Starting with a reference to the 2017 lawsuit filed by six immigrant students, including UCSF medical graduate New Latthivongskorn, this chapter chronicles longtime practices by the US government to limit immigration benefits (and education) to those seen as deserving of them, criteria that has historically crossed the lines of race, national origin, language, and class. This chapter examines such history and its implications for the immigrant rights’ advocacy movement today.
