How school systems respond to migration has an enormous impact on migrant integration. Schools can be a vehicle for social integration and mobility, and for developing a sense of belonging to the local community. But schools can also be an isolating and discriminatory place and act as a barrier to integration. Within schools, teachers are key for creating opportunities for learning and participation, especially for migrant students.
NordForsk in collaboration with the Academy of Finland; the Swedish Research Council; the Research Council of Norway; the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Iceland; and the Danish Council for Strategic Research is issuing a call for proposals for research projects in a newly established programme entitled "Education for Tomorrow".
The thematic area for this joint call for proposals is inclusion in pre-primary and primary education with a focus on teaching and learning for children and students in need of special support. Projects are required to incorporate cooperation between researchers and research-oriented practitioners.
Pigerne udkonkurrerer i stigende grad drengene i de nordiske landes uddannelsessystemer. Hvilke konsekvenser kan det få for mænds sundhed, for velfærdssamfundet og arbejdslivet i Norden i fremtiden? Disse spørgsmål blev diskuteret på seminaret “Gender Gaps in Nordic Educational Achievement”, som blev afholdt i Oslo.
The project will approach educational inclusion from a holistic and an intersectional perspective highlighting ethnicity, social class, gender, and educational needs when comparing the three cities: Helsinki, Reykjavik and Amsterdam.
