The Education of Migrants' Children (Vienna and Lower Austria). The CDCC's Project No. 7: "The Education and Cultural Development of Migrants."
The report presents the main observations and conclusions from a three-day visit by a group of experts from the Council for Cultural Cooperation CDCC Project No. 7 to Vienna and lower Austria to examine educational provisions for migrant children to enhance and accelerate their acquisition of German as a second language and to facilitate their integration into the mainstream education system and to examine the initial and inservice training of teachers in multi-ethnic schools. Following an introductory section, Part 2 describes migrant workers (primarily from Yugoslavia and Turkey) and their families. Part 3 explains the legal and informal provisions for migrant children in Austrian schools. Part 4 details the special German language support for migrant children in Viennese compulsory schools. Part 5 outlines the integrative model of the Bad Voslau Day Boarding School. Part 6 covers the mother tongue tuition provided for Yugoslav and Turkish pupils. Part 7 traces interculturalism in the education of teachers. Part 8 concludes that the most pertinent lesson to be drawn from the Austrian experience lies in the effective demonstration that institutional obstacles, which so often hinder educational cooperation, can be eliminated without compunction.
