    • Synopsis

      This report refers to the challenges posed by the presence of underprivileged migrant children in schools. Since the enlargement of the European Union, the flow of migration from the accession countries has intensified leading to a significant number of immigrants in the EU-15 member States. This has meant that schools must make a greater effort to promote integration, particularly in large cities where the inflow is more intense.

      The book focuses on school children that have recently arrived and have greater difficulties because of their cultural, language and socio-economic differences. Risks are entailed if schools do not make an effort for immigrants and their children to attain the same level in school as their peers. The risks could include social fracture, cultural segregation, exclusion of communities and inter-ethnical conflict.

      The book contains an introduction, an analysis of migrant children’s education in schools, a grounded presentation of migrant children’s educational disadvantage, an analysis of how the issue is addressed across Europe, and a proposed consultation.
