Minority Students' Perceptions of Schooling and Teachers Quality to Support Their Learning in Norway
Alhassan, Awal Mohammed; Bawa, Kuyini Ahmed
World Journal of Education, v2 n2 p95-108 Apr 2012
In this study we surveyed 98 migrant or minority students in the Oslo and Follo areas of Norway about their experiences of school. We also surveyed 50 teachers who were teaching in those schools about their background information and teaching practices and how that might impact on student learning. We then followed 32 of the 98 students 3 years later to find out what these students felt about the role of the school and teachers in supporting their learning and its contribution to their success or non-success in school. There were differences in the perceptions of those young people who finished high school and those who dropped out of school after the initial survey, who felt that schools were not very supportive.
