Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: "This paper reports on research (both primary research and a literature review), undertaken with the aim of demonstrating strategies for successful inclusion into Australian society of children and families from culturally and linguistically different (CaLD) backgrounds. We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Parental ethnic identity and educational attainment of second-generation immigrants /

by Sch ller, Simone | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: A lack of cultural integration is often blamed for hindering immigrant families' economic progression. This paper is a first attempt to explore whether immigrant parents' ethnic identity affects the next generation's human capital accumulation in the host country. Empirical results based on data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP) indicate that maternal majority as well as paternal minority identity are positively related to the educational attainment of second-generation youth ? even controlling for differences in ethnicity, family background and years-since-migration. Additional tests show that the effect of maternal majority identity can be explained by mothers' German language proficiency, while the beneficial effect of fathers' minority identity is not related to language skills and thus likely to stem from paternal minority identity per se.Availability: (1)
