    Immigrant Students at School - Easing the Journey towards Integration

    How school systems respond to immigration has an enormous impact on the economic and social well-being of all members of the communities they serve, whether they have an immigrant background or not. Immigrant Students at School: Easing the Journey towards Integration reveals some of the difficulties immigrant students encounter – and some of the contributions they offer – as they settle into their new communities and new schools.

    Results from the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) indicate that students with an immigrant background tend to perform worse in school than students without an immigrant background. Several factors are associated with this disparity, including the concentration of disadvantage in the schools immigrant students attend, language barriers and certain school policies, like grade repetition and tracking, that can hinder immigrant students’ progress through school.

    But successful integration is measured in more than academic achievement; immigrant students’ well-being and hopes for the future are just as telling. This report examines not only immigrant students’ aspirations and sense of belonging at school, but also recent trends in Europeans’ receptiveness to welcoming immigrants into their own countries – the context that could make all the difference in how well immigrant students integrate into their new communities. The report includes a special section on refugees and education, and an extensive discussion on education policy responses to immigration.

    Garantir la qualité de l'enseignement supérieur transnational - Mise en œuvre des lignes directrices UNESCO/OCDE

    Au cours des dix dernières années, de nombreux pays ont conçu des politiques explicites d'internationalisation de leurs systèmes d'enseignement supérieur, reconnaissant les avantages d'une expérience internationale pour préparer les étudiants à une économie en pleine mondialisation, ainsi que les nombreuses opportunités crées par la mobilité transnationale en termes d'innovation, d'amélioration et de développement des capacités dans l'enseignement supérieur et dans l'économie dans son ensemble.

    Des cas de fraude et des comportements opportunistes ont cependant montré que ces promesses s’accompagnent de risques pour les étudiants et d’autres acteurs de l'enseignement tertiaire. C'est précisément dans le but d'aider toutes les parties prenantes à minimiser ces risques et à renforcer les dynamiques d'ouverture, de collaboration et de transparence entre les pays que l'UNESCO et l'OCDE ont développé ensemble leurs Lignes directrices pour des prestations de qualité dans l'enseignement supérieur transfontalier.

    Analysant dans quelle mesure les acteurs de l'enseignement supérieur se sont conformés à ces lignes directrices en 2014, cet ouvrage intéressera les décideurs, les directeurs d'établissements d'enseignement supérieur et les agences d'assurance qualité, ainsi que les universitaires et autres parties intéressées par l'enseignement supérieur et son internationalisation.
