This regional dossier aims to provide a concise description of the European minority language, Cornish, in education. Aspects that are addressed include features of the education system, recent educational policies, main actors, legal arrangements and support structures, as well as quantitative aspects such as the number of schools, teachers, pupils, and financial investments. This kind of information can serve several purposes and can be relevant for policymakers, researchers, teachers, students, and journalists as the information provided serves as a first orientation towards further research, or function as a source of ideas for improving educational provisions in their own region. This dossier contains a glossary, foreword, and an introduction to the region under study, and six sections dealing with a specific level of the education system. Sections eight to ten cover research, prospects, and summary statistics. Lists of regulations, publications, and useful addresses concerning the minority language, are given at the end of the dossier. [The 2001 first edition of this regional dossier was compiled by Arjan Hut. Unless otherwise stated academic data refer to the school year 2017-2018.]
