Brittain studies how Chinese and Mexican immigrant students exchange information about their experiences and perceptions of American schools. She considers three specific times: prior to immigration, upon entry to the U.S., and after a few years of living in the U.S. and attending U.S. schools. Issues of academic demands, cost of education, value of the English language, social struggles, and racial confrontations are subjects that these students discuss with their co-nationals. Her findings highlight the fears and realities of racial discrimination, expectations of lower academic standards in America, and the unique ways the students' different cultural backgrounds shape their responses to immigration.
