Abstract

Jeremy Hilburn HSJ Editoral Board highschooljournal@unc.edu During our recent reconfiguration of The High School Journal, our editorial board sought to define the issues of greatest concern to those in the field of education; the question of immigration and its relationship to secondary education was one of these. In light of our new mission to challenge the way society attempts to understand and reform secondary education without adequately addressing its interactions with and place in the world, we offer this special issue on Latino/a transnationalism as a way to interrogate assumptions about Latino/a immigration and education. This special issue is timely and relevant. For educators who live in places like North Carolina, a state which has a very limited immigration history but a recent boom of immigrant students, this issue can provide a starting point for conversations about the education of immigrants. For educators who live in places like New York, with long immigration histories and continued high rates of immigration, this issue can promote discussion about the new contexts of immigration and even challenge our understanding of this complex process. Regardless of the area in which one lives, all Americans are invested in the next generation. Since immigrant
