A study published in the September/October issue of the journal Child Development found different developmental patterns of achievement between immigrant children of different races/ethnicities. Overall, the study found that immigrant groups as a whole make large gains over time, and that some groups are more likely to have problems than others.
The study, from researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and Columbia University in New York City, also finds that across racial/ethnic groups, immigrant children (except for black immigrant children) had significantly lower verbal scores on average than their respective non-immigrant peers, and that these lower scores were directly related to family income and the mother's level of education and age.
