Compendium of Information on Intercultural Education Schemes in Europe. Education of Migrants' Children.
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
The collection of essays describes 12 European experiments in multicultural education. Most of the complementary experiments focus on the school establishment, taking school and the introduction of intercultural education as a starting point for developing relations with the family and the community. Some concentrate on the means of intercultural education, especially teacher training, cooperation between native and migrant teachers, and the production of teaching aids. Others concentrate from the outset on the community and involve the school as an ideal partner in intercultural education, through the disseminating effect and influence that its action can have. The essays describe experiments in the Federal Republic of Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Turkey, France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. They include multicultural education projects at the preschool, elementary, secondary, and teacher educational levels and projects that involve Germans and Turks, Finns and Swedes, Yugoslavs and Swedes, Greek Cypriots and English, and Dutch and Turk/Moraccans. The essays show that interculturalism is being increasingly espoused by educational and social officials concerned with the joint education of native and migrant children and with the integration of migrants in local communities.
