The Transition of Gambian Children to New York City Public Schools

The paper describes the typical school life of a Gambian child and notes that most students finish schooling at the age of 16. The deplorable conditions in boarding school are also described. Interviews with children revealed that they recalled similar experiences from their early childhood in Gambia, preferred school life in New York City, but missed certain aspects of their home country.
