Immigrant Education in Sweden: Lessons for America.
Holm, Gunilla; Farber, Paul
International Journal of Educational Reform, v8 n1 p53-59 Jan 1999
Although state services for immigrants are quite generous, immigrant communities have struggled, socially and economically, to enter mainstream Swedish society. A growing sense of transgenerational isolation is evident. Education of immigrant children is characterized by "negative tolerance" and lack of bilingual support. Conceptions of "Swedishness" are at fault. (16 references) (MLH)
