UNESCO-FIPLV Symposium on "Teaching the Children of Immigrants," January 27-31, 1975, Report.
Federation International des Professeurs de Langues Vivantes.; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The conclusions of the UNESCO-FIPLV symposium on the education of the children of migrant workers are reported here. It is felt that the scope and nature of migration creates many different and complex interrelated problems that call for interdisciplinary approaches, both on a national and an international level. The objectives of the education of migrant children are to: (1) integrate them into a multicultural society; (2) make it possible for them to enjoy equal opportunities both in educational and sociocultural development; (3) foster their native language and culture; (4) involve the migrant parents in the education of their children; (5) involve the various countries in a cooperative educational effort; and (6) make all members of society aware of the role that everyone can play in the education and social integration of migrant children. The recommendations of the symposium to the various countries involved deal with: (1) the reception of migrant families into the host country; (2) the placement of migrant children in schools; (3) the training and the status of teachers who will work with migrant children; (4) curriculum adaptation and certification; and (5) the assurance of integration and active participation of migrant children and their parents in school and community life.
