Ad Hoc Conference on the Education of Migrants: Introductory Report on Theme II, "Educational Provision Before and During the Host Country's Compulsory Schooling Period" (Strasbourg, France, November 5-8, 1974).
Theme II of the Ad Hoc Conference on the Education of Migrants was "measures to secure satisfactory educational provision before and during the host country's compulsory schooling period (including specialized and additional training for teachers dealing with migrant workers' children)". This paper briefly discusses this theme. Major topics are: (1) problems arising from the presence of substantial numbers of migrant workers' children in the host country; (2) ways of easing their integration into the host country's educational system; and (3) schemes and projects quoted by way of example and taken from the reports presented by the participating countries. These are divided into before and during compulsory schooling and teacher training in the emigration and host countries. Recommendations presented for consideration by the Standing Conference of European Ministers of Education are given. The appendices include: (1) Resolution No. 3 (1969)--the nursery school and primary school in relation to the demands of educational opportunity for all; and (2) Resolution (70) 35--school education for the children of migrant workers.
