Immigrant and U.S.-Born Parents of Young and Elementary-School-Age Children

The Migration Policy Institute has released a report rich with data and analysis related to Immigrant and US-Born parents of young children, further underscoring the important work of programs supported by Literacy New York. Parents are instrumental to school readiness and success, a point that became especially apparent with the onset of the COVID pandemic. The MPI report includes statistics and information at the state and county level. A goal of the report is "to support efforts to better understand and more equitably address the integration needs of immigrant families." Supporting adult literacy supports whole families!
