Better results for students with foreign background

What can we do to reduce barriers and increase opportunities for better learning outcomes for students with foreign background?

Time and place


Norra Latin, Drottninggatan 71b, Stockholm 15.11.2013 from 09:00 to 12:00

The project Learning spaces for inclusion and social justice: Success stories from immigrant students and school communities in Four Nordic Countries within NordForsk's programme Education for Tomorrow addresses students with foreign background and what we can do to improve their learning outcomes.

At this seminar, participants from the project come to Stockholm to share what they have found so far regarding barriers and opportunities for improving learning outcomes. A debate will follow on how Sweden can use this knowledge, and what action is required.
