About the Author
  • Margy McClain

    E-mail Author
    MARGY MCCLAIN is an independent scholar affiliated with the Oklahoma City Public Schools. She has also served as faculty member at several midwestern universities in the fields of social foundations of education and qualitative research, teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Her research interests include relationships between parents and schools, education in the “new Latino diaspora,” and parents’ life histories and their impact on their children’s education, especially in families from Mexico and Guatemala. A current project focuses on young English Language Learners (ELLs) acquiring spoken English while they are learning to read. Placing ELLs in regular classrooms with only supplementary English language development instruction is a widely used approach. What is the experience of young children who must simultaneously acquire listening and reading comprehension in a second language? Does this educational experience prepare them for success in US schooling? Recent articles include “The New Latino Diaspora and Education” in The Praeger Handbook of Latino Education in the U.S. (edited by Lourdes Diaz Soto).
