After a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010, thousands of Haitians moved to the U.S. and enrolled their children in school here.

David Figlio, Dean of the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University, joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss his research on the impact these Haitian refugee students had on the non-refugee students who were already attending those schools.

Figlio’s study is “Influx of Haitian Refugees in Florida Didn’t Hurt Student Outcomes,” co-written with Umut Ozek.
