Rights, Protections and Education for all Immigrant and Refugee Children

This basic right applies to all children regardless of immigration status, including refugees, unaccompanied minors, and undocumented youth. FATE acknowledges and celebrates the richness of the diverse background of these children and supports the teachers and administrators who welcome them into their school communities.

FATE upholds the following statements:

  • We support all educators – teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, and support staff – in the education of all youth, including immigrant, undocumented, and unaccompanied learners.
  • We respect the diversity of our student populations and recognize their historical relationship within the United States, including those who have recently joined our communities.
  • We advocate for dignity and equity within our education systems for any and all children.
