The Strength through Diversity: Education for Inclusive Societies project aims to identify how education systems can be equitable and inclusive by supporting the learning and well-being outcomes of diverse populations, and ensuring that all individuals are able to engage with others in increasingly diverse and complex societies.
Strength Through Diversity covers five major themes:
• Migration-induced diversity • Ethnic groups, national minorities and Indigenous peoples • Gender • Special education needs • Giftedness
The policy forum series aims to stimulate a discussion among key stakeholders on opportunities for peer learning and collaboration. Meetings are organised around different topics and convene a variety of stakeholders from interested countries.
Results from the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) reveal that in 2015, almost one in four 15-year-old students in OECD countries reported that they were either foreign-born or had at least one foreign-born parent.
