Immigrants and the Education System. An Action Programme for the Work of the National Board of Education in Connection with Immigrant Affairs.
National Swedish Board of Education, Stockholm.
The Swedish National Board of Education's action program for long-term planning of work relating to the teaching of immigrants and minorities is outlined in this report. First, material is presented which describes the background and focus of the program, the immigrant population to be served, and Sweden's general immigration policy as it applies to education. The program's basic premises are described, focusing specifically on the education of youth in compulsory schools and upper secondary schools. Then, educational provisions, laws, and proposals affecting students at the following educational levels are detailed: preschool, compulsory, upper secondary, and adult. Teacher and staff training, inservice training, and research and development are discussed next, and three final sections deal with teaching materials, books and other sources of information, research needs, and the need for cooperation among education and immigration-related authorities and organizations.
