NY Times Op-Ed: Child Migrants, Alone in Court


Many of you heard and were inspired by Rice Professor Richard Tapia at the 2013 RUSMP Spring Networking Conference.  He has been a long-time champion of underrepresented minorities in mathematics and science and was awarded the National Medal of Science in 2011.

Recently he forwarded to us an op-ed piece by Sonia Nazario, author of the book, Enrique’s Journey.  She wrote to Tapia that “I wrote this op-ed because it’s an issue I feel passionately about and one I believe this country needs to address.  I also wanted to share a bit of good news: Enrique’s Journey, adapted for younger readers, will be out this August for junior high school students. If you know any teachers who might be interested in a preview copy, please let me know! ”

Her op-ed piece titled, Child Migrants, Alone in Court is available here.
