This paper presents a hypothetical research project proposal for the fictional Child Watch organization. The paper examines the potential shortcomings of the project, the academic sources from which emerged the guiding hypothesis, and the methodology to be used. Essentially, the paper argues that there is an appreciable decline in the academic performance of immigrants, the more assimilated they become.

From the Paper:

"This is a proposed survey for Child Watch in which our research group attempts to measure the impact of assimilation upon non-Caucasian students in Philadelphia's public schools. There are certain broad components to any project of this kind that cannot be overlooked. To begin with, we must address the "Operationalization" of the concepts to be explored. In other words, this paper will take the broad concept - "the paradox of immigrant adaptation" - and hypothesize it thusly: "second and third-generation immigrant children struggle far more with school than their first-generation predecessors because of the adoption of attitudes that are incongruent with academic achievement. In exploring this hypothesis, we will turn to two previous peer-reviewed articles that seem to support such a conclusion. From there, we will examine the practical implementation of such a project."
