Global Migration has changed the practice of educational leaders, policy makers, students, teachers and community members. This book traces this worldwide shift through research-based chapters that touch on both local idiosyncrasies and dynamics common across many contexts.  
Education, Immigration and Migration identifies issues educational leaders face as they seek to lead schools and school systems experiencing immigration and better understand their current strategies for improvement. The chapters shed light on the poorly understood relationship between educational leadership and refugee populations by giving a deeper appreciation of the scope and nature of issues at local, national and transnational levels. Each chapter offers new ways in which practitioners, policy-makers and scholars can think about complex dilemmas such as the implementation of equitable and democratic values, and difficulties involved in adapting organization and culture. Given its cross-national interdisciplinary approach, this book will prove invaluable for educational leaders, scholars and policymakers alike.

A must read for anyone wanting to delve into the complex issues related to how educators and community leaders can create welcoming and inclusive environments for migrants, refugees, and immigrants! This edited book provides glimpses into the laws, regulations, and praxis related to displaced peoples in multiple countries including Britain, Canada, Sweden, Turkey, Spain, Syria, and the United States. All authors, who are members of the global educational leadership and research community, focus in some way on issues of leadership and equity related to serving the most vulnerable populations. To do so, in the 15 chapters of this book, these authors offer multiple perspectives that help us both gain an overview of the challenges presented when policy and praxis collide and begin to understand some ways in which leaders can promote high expectations, equity, and social justice in today’s changing and turbulent times. - Carolyn M Shields, Wayne State University, USA
