This is a descriptive study of the assimilation of Italian immigrant children in Hamilton. The first part of the thesis examines previous research which the author feels is relevant to the area of assimilation and adjustment on the part of immigrants. Also in the first part the main concepts are evolved which are used in the latter part of the thesis in reference to Italian School children in Hamilton . Linking these two parts is a discussion first of the Italian Family, second of Hamilton and its ethnic structure and third of the Canadian education system in particular: as it is reflected in the Hamilton public and separate school systems.
