Dr. Sattin-Bajaj is an Assistant Professor and Co-director of the Center for College Readiness at Seton Hall University.
School choice—now a pillar of education reform in the United States—is widely touted as a strategy for addressing educational inequity. Yet efforts to implement school choice can exacerbate, rather than counteract, inequities. Unaccompanied Minors takes a close look at the experience of immigrant students and their families navigating New York City’s mandatory high school choice program and outlines strategic steps schools and districts can take to guide families from all backgrounds through the choice process.
