I Learn America / Jean-Michel Dissard, Gitte Peng

In America, one in four children is a child of immigration. Here to stay, they are the future. How this country fares in welcoming them will determine the nature of its continually emerging identity for years to come. At the International High School at Lafayette, a Brooklyn public high school dedicated to newly arrived immigrants from all over the world, five teenagers strive to master English, adapt to families they haven’t seen in years, and create a future of their own while coming of age in a new land. Through these five vibrant young people, their stories and struggles, we “learn America.”
