Rodriguez, G. M., & Cruz, L. (2009). The Transition to College of English Learner and Undocumented Immigrant Students: Resource and Policy Implications. Teachers College Record, 111(10), 2385-2418.

The research questions guiding this analysis are: (1) What do we know and what do we need to know about the transition to college of EL and undocumented immigrant students? and (2) What are the resource and policy implications associated with the transition to college of these students? The chief purpose of this analysis is to synthesize the current research and thinking about the transitions to college of EL and undocumented immigrant students and to use the findings to develop a research agenda focused on emergent critical issues. The intent is to educate a research audience that is largely unfamiliar with the experiences of these unique populations and to inform future research directions.
