The Education of the Children of Migrant Workers in Europe: Interculturalism and Teacher Training.
Education of the children of migrant workers in Europe is addressed in terms of interculturalism and teacher training. This report is the cornerstone of the experts' work; it not only sums up a number of case studies, but also discusses the subject of intercultural education and presents the guidelines that experts have followed and on which their actions and recommendations are based. Part one addresses intercultural education for all pupils, the need for international collaboration, learner-centered teaching, the school and the outside world, and a new kind of education. Part two provides an overview of what ought to be done and addresses specifically what the decision-makers and training centers could do. The conclusions reiterate that the intent of the report was not to proffer solutions, but to suggest a few in the form of operational proposals; thus, offering the readers a working instrument rather than a final answer. Appendices offer extracts from eight experts' reports on training teachers in the Federal Republic of Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, plus training Portuguese and Spanish teachers working in France.
