HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:
Pathways to Success: Immigrant Youth at High School research project was a partnership between the Centre for Research and Education in Human Services (CREHS) and Wilfrid Laurier University. The purpose of this project was to use Waterloo Region as a case study to explore factors that maximize positive outcomes (both social and academic) for immigrant youth in high school. The research was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
‘Pathways to Success’ builds on past research by providing in-depth insights into the range of immigrant youth experience in school (not limited only to the ESL experience). As a qualitative study, it gives much needed interpretation to the alarming quantitative data on ESL student dropout rates. It is solution-focused, offering leaders in the Waterloo Region community with concrete ‘pathways to success’ that are rooted in the experiences of immigrant students themselves.
