In Portraits of Promise, from Harvard Education Press, author Michael Sadowski, Ed.M.'95, Ed.D.'05, explores what and who in schools can help these students achieve success, through the stories of the ultimate experts—successful newcomer students themselves.
In this edition of the EdCast, Sadowski discusses his book and shares insight into the perspective and voices of successful immigrant students from across the country.
