Council of Europe Special Experimental Classes for Migrant Workers' Children, School Year 1972-73. (Belgium).
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Documentation Center for Education in Europe.
The Council of Europe grant for the 1972-73 school year relating to the schooling of migrant workers enabled the study of the underlying causes of the educational backwardness of Turkish children in Retinne (Liege, Belgium). Aim was to find effective solutions to help these students. A special experimental class was conducted on 2 levels: (1) teaching and out-of-school activities; and (2) a parallel effort, though with a slight time-lag, to make parents aware of the difficulties encountered by their children. The socio-cultural programme aimed at the harmonious assimilation of the Turkish sub-community in the local and regional context. This report cites some of the activities conducted by the Council of Europe's grant. Among these are: (1) catch-up classes in French organized for about 20 Turkish children between the ages of 6 and 10; (2) a Turkish language course conducted on Saturday mornings, outside normal school hours; and (3) the socio-cultural programme (Education of Adults).
