Research Spotlight: Helping Refugee Students Learn in Schools

by Vicki Davis

In today's show, we are working to develop empathy for some of our most struggling students – students who are refugees. Looking at Syrian Refugee students in Lebanon, we are spotlighting students who need our encouragement and help. This is not an easy topic, but we should all consider it. Take the time to talk to students in your school who are refugees and help others develop empathy and reach out to help them. We all need someone to help us.

Ibrahim M. Karkouti – Bio as Submitted

Ibrahim M. KarkoutiIbrahim M. Karkouti is an independent thinker, a young scholar, and a life-long learner who recently defended his doctoral dissertation at the University of Hartford, CT – USA. Ten years of professional experience in Lebanon, Qatar, and the United States have taught Ibrahim that learning has no boundaries and that education matters the most when it is used to remedy the deleterious effects of segregation, racism, sectarianism, and other forms of discriminatory practices that prevent historically excluded populations from attaining their basic rights to education, healthcare, and prosperity. Karkouti’s research focuses on diversity issues in higher education, the elements that aid in the facilitation of the use of technology in the classroom and the types of social support K-12 teachers need to embrace and implement reform.
