- Immigrant and Refugee Education
While our world faces an international refugee and migrant crisis, Nebraska can feel the effects in its own backyard. This is the largest growing population in Nebraska’s public schools.
We wanted to learn more about the process of how these families come to Nebraska and how our schools are prepared to welcome them and aid in their adjustment.
For this, we went to the most direct source: the U.S. Department of State: Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration. Assistant Secretary, Anne Richard.
