In his research, Richard Rothstein found that during the immigration period from 1880 to 1915, few Americans succeeded in school, least of all immigrants; immigrants of all backgrounds did poorly. Instead, it was the children and grandchildren of European immigrants who fared well in school, but the myth that first-generation immigrants “made it,” at least in terms of academics, is firmly established in the public psyche. (Nieto & Bode, 2012).
