Barriers within education for newcomers

Description (English): 

With the involvement of key resource people, including newcomer youth, service providers and those working within education, we will discuss multiple issues that diverse newcomer populations experience in Canadian schools, including: the need to fulfill language requirements; the provision of misinformation by guidance counsellors and other school staff; other experiential barriers that often deter students from continuing on their trajectories of academic success.
