Teaching and Teacher Education - Special Issue


More Information: Coming soon

November 20th - 21st 2008


Many international migrants are parents who
have left without their children. In some
countries of emigration, there is an established
tradition of fostering and a view that temporary
separation of children from their biological
parents is not a bad thing. In other countries,
there is widespread concern that current
emigration of parents is a serious threat to the
well-being of a generation of children.
