U.S. and Mexican Researchers Meet to Discuss Students in Common

As many as half a million students who have spent time in U.S. schools are attending schools in Mexico and about one in ten students in the United States are children of Mexican immigrants, my colleague Debra Viadero reports today on her blog Inside School Research.

More than half, 53.7 percent, of English-language learners who were born outside of the United States who attend school in this country come from Mexico, according to Quality Counts 2009.

Debra also reports that researchers on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border met Jan. 15 and 16 for a conference on "The Students We Share."
