Research Initiative:

Hirokazu Yoshikawa, Professor of Education at the Graduate School of Education, Harvard University, will write a book about child development in low-income immigrant families. Yoshikawa will employ three years of survey, observational, and qualitative data from a birth cohort drawn from three immigrant groups as well as one native-born group to address several related questions. These topics include an understanding of how immigrant parents with restricted access to benefits make ends meet, as well as a consideration of how immigration-related factors, economic resources, and parenting processes shape the early learning and development of children in immigrant families.
