Examples of Best Practice: "All Together We Are the City"--A Workshop Developed by the Muslim Minority Education Project in Greece
Magos, Kostas
Intercultural Education, v18 n2 p161-168 2007
There is a significant population of Muslim citizens in Greece, sometimes referred to as the Muslim minority, who live in the geographical region of Thrace. For many years, little attention was devoted to the educational needs of this group, and there was consequently a high percentage of school failure and early school leaving. The poorly functioning collaboration between the teachers of the majority and the teachers of the minority, weak communication between minority schools and mainstream schools and the lack of teacher-training in intercultural education were key reasons for this. Recently, significant educational initiatives have taken place in the field of Muslim minority education within the framework of a broad educational project, entitled "The Muslim Minority Education Project". The aims of the project are to improve the educational provision for students from this Muslim minority and to promote the principles and philosophy of intercultural education. (Contains 16 notes.)
