Newcomers in California

In 2019, the Oakland International Learning Lab commissioned a landscape analysis to examine the trends, policies, and practices related to K-12 newcomer education across the state. Partnering with the Sobrato Family Foundation, the International Networks for Public Schools, and the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Public Policy, OIHS supported a policy fellow in conducting a literature review, interviewing over thirty policymakers and practitioners, and analyzing state level student data.


The infographic below summarizes our data findings along with relevant law and policy recommendations. The data comes directly from the California Department of Education, and allows us to examine demographic and enrollment information for Title III Immigrant Students (newcomers) in detail for the first time.
