Overview of contents

Education is crucial for successful integration. Although diversity is an opportunity to make schools more inclusive, creative and open-minded, inequality in education is the highest among migrant children. Migrants and refugees often face discrimination and xenophobia. For instance, the educational achievements of those groups are in generally poor. Many students from this group are more likely to drop out from formal education, leading to higher risks of social marginalisation, failure to integrate, and, ultimately, poverty. The latter has long-term adverse effects on the social development and economic growth of the host country.
