Keep Those Kids Out: Nativism and Attitudes Toward Access to Public Education for the Children of Undocumented Immigrants, a manuscript by Samford sociology professor Theresa Davidson and sociology alumna Karlye Burson `15, has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Latinos and Education.

The research project, supported by the Samford ASPIRE undergraduate research program, shows via national survey data that nativist attitudes, along with other factors, predict opposition toward access to public education for the children of undocumented immigrants.
