As posted Jan 22 on this blog, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development – the OECD – is undertaking a thematic review of migrant education.
The question being asked is ‘What policies will promote successful education outcomes for first and second generation migrants’?
The objectives and outputs are based on criteria for the assessment of the successful integration into the education system, including pre-school education, which is threefold:
1. Access: Do immigrant students/children have the same opportunities to access quality education as their native-born peers?
2. Participation: Do immigrant students/children participate (enrol and complete) as much as their native-born peers?
3. Learning outcomes: Do immigrant students/children perform as well as their native-born peers?
An interesting project. Here’s the site.
