Resources for Newcomers and the People Who Support their Transition

The Education System and Afghan Newcomers

Classroom icon"The U.S. Department of Education recognizes that there is an immediate and urgent need to provide high-quality, culturally responsive education to Afghan newcomers – inclusive of primary, secondary, and English language learning as well as social and emotional learning. Many Afghan allies and their families protected our troops, supported our diplomatic community, and served our country. We welcome them into our nation, as we do with every child who comes to or enters the country regardless of their immigration status, and we are committed to providing them with an equitable and excellent education." -- From the Dear Colleague Letter linked below.
