Mass migration is the human face of globalization. Where immigrant workers are summoned, families and children will follow. Nearly all the high-income countries of the world are experiencing substantial growth in their immigrant-origin student populations. Concurrently, globalization is placing new demands on education systems all over the world. As a consequence, schooling systems are facing something they never faced before: educating large and growing numbers of ever more diverse immigrant-origin youth to greater levels of competence and skill at a time of economic upheaval and cultural malaise.

In this lecture we will examine the challenges of immigration and education in an age of global vertigo with a focus on the transition to higher education. The lecture will introduce the most up to date data on immigration and education from the US. It shall conclude by examining best practices to prepare children and emerging adults for higher education, for the labor market, and for the practice of citizenship in an ever more interconnected, miniaturized, and fragile world.
