Immigrant Students at School - Easing the Journey towards Integration

In 2015, Europe recorded an unprecedented number of asylum seekers: as many as one million. An estimated 350,000 to 450,000 people could be granted refugee or similar status, more than in any previous European refugee crisis since World War II. The way in which education systems respond to migration has an enormous impact on whether or not migrants are successfully integrated into their host communities, and on the economic and social well-being of all members of the communities they serve, whether they have an immigrant background or not. This report examines in detail how immigrant students fare in different education systems – and what this means for education policy makers.




 

 

 

 

 

 

The ABC of Gender Equality in Education: Aptitude, Behaviour, Confidence

The ABC of Gender Equality in Education: Aptitude, Behaviour, Confidence tries to determine why 15-year-old boys are more likely than girls, on average, to be overall low achievers, and why high-performing 15-year-old girls underachieve in mathematics, science and problem solving compared to high-achieving boys. As the evidence in the report makes clear, gender disparities in school performance stem from students’ attitudes towards learning and their behaviour in school, from how they choose to spend their leisure time, and from the confidence they have – or do not have – in their own abilities as students.

The archived webinar with Andreas Schleicher presenting the results from  The ABC of Gender Equality in Education: Aptitude, Behaviour, Confidence is now available.
