Seminar: Immigration, Education, and Social Mobility: The Case of Israel

Have you ever thought about the connection between immigrant students’ STEM education outcomes and their ability to succeed in a new society? This question has probably crossed your mind. You also would agree that STEM education opens many doors for upward social mobility to the students. However, how do we encourage students, especially immigrant students, to enroll in STEM subjects in secondary schools? What are the policy recommendations that would support these students? These questions are the research focus of an Israeli sociologist – Dr. Svetlana Chachashvili-Bolotin. She is a Senior Lecturer at Ruppin Academic Center in Israel and she gave an engaging ‘invited talk’ on the topic to the graduate students at UBC Faculty of Education on September 9th, 2019. Her presentation can be downloaded below.
