Record of the Proceedings of the Ad Hoc Conference on the Education of Migrants (Strasbourg, France, November 5-8, 1974).
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Documentation Center for Education in Europe.
The conference aimed to draw up conclusions and recommendations on action to be taken at the national, bilateral, and multilateral levels with regard to the education of migrants and their children. Three main themes were addressed: (1) improving the position of the immigrant and his family, primarily in their educational circumstances, at the time of arrival in the host country; (2) securing satisfactory educational provision before and during the host country's compulsory schooling period; and (3) securing satisfactory provisions of opportunities for vocational and technical training and general education for adults and adolescents. Recommendations aimed to tackle or define the problems encountered by migrants in adapting and adjusting to the host country and their new social environment; and measures to ensure equal opportunities for migrants and nationals, particularly for migrant children's education and their admittance to socio-cultural and sports activities. The need for acquiring an adequate knowledge of the language of the host country, while maintaining the command of the language and culture of the home country was stressed. (JD)
