Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
California and its economy continue to draw benefits from immigration. However, a combination of much larger immigration flows and major changes in the state's economic environment have increased the costs of immigration, and unless current policies with regard to immigration and immigrants are changed, the benefits the state currently receives from immigrants may not continue. International immigration to California has steadily increased over the past 30 years and has profoundly affected the state's population and economy. Some observers of these changes are seeing the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. For others, California has become the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their educational and economic progress since their arrival? This book is the culmination of a comprehensive study of how immigration has changed over the past three decades. It assesses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, with lessons to be drawn for other states, the nation, and even other countries

Newcomers in American schools : meeting the educational needs of immigrant youths by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 235 libraries worldwide
In this report, the authors examine the schooling needs of immigrant students, assess how well these needs are currently being met, and suggest strategies for improving schooling outcomes for immigrants. The study analyzes immigrant education from a broad policy perspective, explicitly considering it as a political issue in competition for policymakers' attention and scarce public resources and as one of many challenges facing increasingly overburdened local school systems. Study data were collected from a purposive sample of nine school districts and 57 schools. Both on-site and telephone interviews were conducted with 240 district and school administrators, teachers, counselors, and community representatives. Four major conclusions emerged from the research: 1) Although they represent only a fraction of the nation's youth, immigrants constitute a growing proportion of that cohort and are heavily concentrated in a few areas of the country; 2) immigrant education is not a visible policy issue. Independent of their need to learn English and to escape the consequences of poverty, immigrant students are not viewed by federal and state policymakers as a distinct group requiring unique policy remedies--that immigrants may have different needs than native-born students is not widely recognized nor accepted; 3) the quality of schooling that immigrant students receive largely depends on the capacity of the local communities in which they reside. Yet most of these districts and schools lack the human and fiscal resources to educate students well, whether they are immigrant or native-born; and 4) immigrant students have unmet educational needs that are unique to their newcomer status. But the best way to help immigrant students is to strengthen the school systems that serve them, not to create new categorical programs that single out immigrants for special benefits

Collection development and management at Cornell : a concluding report on activities of the Cornell University Libraries' Project for Collection Development and Management, July 1979-June 1980, with proposals for future planning by J. Gormly Miller( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
Growing concern on behalf of the Cornell Libraries administration about the lack of a central plan for library collection development at Cornell resulted in a study of the collection development function at Cornell, and the product of that study is this comprehensive proposal for a university-wide library collection and information resource planning program. The role and mission of the university's library system, the evolution of that system, and the function of the library system as part of the university information resource network are discussed in detail, the objectives of a collection development plan are outlined, and collection development responsibilities are defined. An organizational structure for collection development at Cornell is proposed, and among the adminstrative and budgetary aspects of the plan presented are the budget process, accounting and fund control, and book fund allocations. The relationship of collection management to collection development is also addressed. Accompanying and illustrating the text are three charts, eight tables, and one figure. The appendices include a list of definitions, a 37-item bibliography on the allocation of book funds in academic libraries, and a list of data collected during the Cornell Collection Management and Development Project.
