Schola Europea--The European School: The Fifteen-Nation School in Luxemburg. The Pedagogical Mini-Europe
Haas, Ludwig
European Education, v36 n3 p77-86 Fall 2004
Originally, European schools were established for children of European Union (EU) staff members to enable them while they were abroad to send their children to schools where they could be taught by teachers from their home country. Each country has its own language department with its own teaching staff. This ensures that the pupils will not feel adrift on resuming schooling in their home countries, when their parents return home after several years working in Luxemburg or Brussels. If the children complete their schooling in the European schools, their diploma with the harmonized examination ["Mittler Reife"] and the European Abitur is accepted in all EU countries. The objective of these schools is to provide a multilingual, multicultural, and multiconfessional schooling for all children at the kindergarten, primary, and secondary levels. In this article, the author describes his experiences in the 50-year-old European school in Luxemburg, where 15 nations are represented. [This report was translated by Stephen D. Naron.]
