Product Details


Education Across Borders is a powerful cri de coeur, appeal, study, and manifesto from three fervently passionate, highly empathetic, and experienced educators who are transforming K–12 education for BIPOC and first-generation students, particularly from Haiti and the Dominican Republic. . . . It is the kind of book that belongs in every classroom, as it could help safeguard young people’s futures and even save their lives.”
—Edwidge Danticat, author of Brother, I’m Dying

“A rallying cry recommended for all who care to connect their students to schools as sites of possibility.”
—Carola Suárez-Orozco, cofounder, Re-Imagining Migration, and Distinguished Professor, University of Massachusetts, Boston

“A must-read for all educators interested in transforming anti-racist theory into everyday classroom practice.”
—Peniel E. Joseph, author of The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

Education Across Borders fiercely advocates that teachers of Haitian, Dominican, and other students with immigrant backgrounds—whose language and cultural needs are largely neglected in classrooms—must do better. Sylvain, Tamerat, and Cerat’s collective years of teaching and research, and depth of theoretical knowledge, provide important insight for ensuring both academic success and positive socio-emotional development for students learning English. This book is for all who are deeply committed to the success of language-minority students and are willing to passionately advocate for it. As such, it should serve as a resource for every educator who teaches these students.”
—Audra M. Watson, director, WW Teaching Fellowship, Institute for Citizens & Scholars
