Transcript of Immigrants/refuges education

Their Struggles to get a Good Education. Immigrants and Refugees Problem Solutions In our community... Statistics Statistics are not the only way to figure out if programs really work or do not work. One of the ways that helped understand if MENA and ESL worked was by giving out surveys to people that would like to answer some questions anonymously. Survey Poverty MENA In October 2011 school district student population listed 14 first languages other than English.
Approximately 35% of school districts 3,000 students are affiliated with English as their second language (ESL program).
Morgan Community College averages 350 ESL adult students every year.
MCC's adult basic Education, GED and ESL students represent 17 first languages.
The main languages spoken by these refugee groups are Amharic, Arabic, Kiswahili, Somali, and Tigrinya.
"16 percent of all students in pre-kinder were children of immigrants but only 2 percent were foreign-born"
"(1970-2000) children of immigrants increased from 6 percent to 19 percent of all school-age children."
15.2 millions were refugees (end of 2011) (local, statewide, or national) ESL One Morgan County. What is MENA? Migrant Education Newcomers Academy What is ESL? English as a Second Language:

international Music Fest One Morgan county Mission OMC facilitated, educates, unites and, collaborates with diverse people and organizations to appreciate the mosaic of our community and strengthen the inclusive nature of our community. " Our two Migrant Education/Graduation Advocates have been working to assist the students, families and schools in providing supplemental services for these students. However, it is the belief of the school district, building administration, and teachers that we must provide increasingly targeted and individualized supplemental services to better prepare our “Migrant Newcomers” for educational success. Many of the identified students have experienced no formal education, limited formal education, or large time gaps in formal education thus hindering their ability to be successful in the public education system."
-MENA website What does MENA do for newcomer? - Students whose first language is something other than English are referred to as "English Language Learners" and are often designated as ESL in order to receive accommodations and support with their language acquisition goals. Taking surveys around the school and in classes that had immigrants and young adults answering these questions showed how it is for them to settle, get a job, or even help with education in Morgan Community. "Some Somalians drop out to work and help the family with payments or other family problems."-Liston "Some families receive benefits from the government." - John Works Cited
