Study on educational support for newly arrived migrant children
The focus of this study was the comparative analysis of policy measures dealing with the inclusion of newly arrived migrant pupils in the selected European education systems focusing mostly on secondary education. The study started with policy mapping in 15 European countries (14 EU members + Norway) with high recent migrant inflows of EU and third country nationals. On this basis the most widespread models of educational support were identified and in-depth case studies selected. The latter analysed how educational support policies were actually implemented at local and school level and identifed factors that were responsible for their relative success or failure. The study provided conclusions and policy recommendations on the effective ways of improving educational achievements of migrant children, preventing their early school leaving and their segregation from native peers.
