Education

 


Mexicans l Jews

We plan to examine the various different forms of education that immigrants received, both in this country and in their home countries. We will look very closely at the types of schooling that these immigrants received in their countries of origin, and discuss the similarities and differences between that schooling and the schooling that they were given in the United States. It is important for us to establish that the aspects of their education that were emphasized in their home countries could be very different from what emphasized in school over here. For example, it might have often been more important for these people to learn trades or about their religion than to learn in what we consider to be traditional school. Furthermore, we will discuss their integration into the school system of the United States and how they reconciled it with the education that they received in their country of origin.
