This panel, co-sponsored by WFYI and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism's Teacher Project, will bring together educators and community stakeholders to share practical information on teaching and advising immigrant students -- and also to hear directly from some undocumented students and the educators who work with them about their experiences in Indianapolis high schools. Beer and snacks will be served. Networking will start at 5:30 and the panel at 6 p.m. The event will coincide with the release of a series of local news reports exploring why so few undocumented students -- only 5-10% of those who graduate high school --enroll in college, in Indiana and across the U.S. Confirmed panelists: Immigration attorney Angela Adams, Adams Immigration Law English-as-a-second-language teacher Jessika Osborne, Emmerich Manual High School IUPUI's Karina Garduño, assistant director of multicultural planning Manual graduate Cinthia, an undocumented student who is currently attending Ivy Tech Community College Education journalist Michael Elsen-Rooney, former teacher and contributor to WFYI, the Atlantic, and Slate Among the topics covered will be: What are the relevant laws for undocumented students who want to attend college in Indiana? What do guidance counselors who may be advising undocumented students need to know? What are specific resources available to help undocumented students find and pay for colleges? How should schools be advertising these resources? How can schools start to have open and sensitive conversations about legal status, while still respecting the privacy of students?
