The “new immigration” has coincided with an era of widening inequality, diminishing opportunity and growing gaps in the educational attainments of children raised in rich and poor families. Immigrants and their children today comprise about a quarter of the U.S. population, transforming its ethnic diversity. Both the most educated and the least educated groups in the U.S. today are immigrants; what happens to their offspring remains a puzzle for educational research. This lecture will trace the story of the education and social mobility of a unique panel of 1.5- and second-generation respondents followed from 1991 (when they were in middle school at mean age 14) to 2015 (in their late 30s).

What do we understand to be the salient issues associated with democracy and education as these relate to justice for individuals and institutions in contemporary society? How do we negotiate differences in attitudes, beliefs, and practices; conceptualize and act on them in relation to our roles in a democracy; engage the broader domains of disagreement; and respond to the human experience and condition? How do we attempt to resolve tensions between citizenship, human rights, and an ever-increasing globalized world? What is the schooling and what are public discourses needed to promote democratic education? Participants for this session include Prudence L. Carter (University of California – Berkeley), John S. Rogers (University of California – Los Angeles), Gloria J. Ladson-Billings (University of Wisconsin – Madison), and Marc Lamont Hill (Morehouse College).
