These Undocumented Teens are Silent No More is an article in Bright where I found that statistic.
As the quote says, the source of that number is Pew. Children of unauthorized immigrants represent rising share of K-12 students from The Pew Research Center also points out that:
About 3.9 million kindergarten through 12th-grade students in U.S. public and private schools in 2014 – or 7.3% of the total – were children of unauthorized immigrants.
Ed Source just published an article specifically about our state: 1 in 8 children in California schools have an undocumented parent
With these numbers, the heightened anxiety because of President Trump’s immigration policies can obviously create classroom challenges.
