Webinar Video: Opening Doors: Innovative Strategies for Immigrant Student Success

July 26th, 2011

In our last webinar poll, our participants told us that parental support and intercultural curriculum education were key priorities to immigrant student success.

Making sure that families are put at the centre of education has been a successful strategy behind Frankfurt’s Diesterweg Scholarship, a program aimed at immigrant families. While from Malmo, we learn that a bilingual education system, which allows immigrant students to learn in their mother tongue and in the language of their adoptive country, creates a unique intercultural experience and increases dialogue between teachers and parents. Both Good Ideas require leadership from education administrators and policy-makers, so that no child is left behind.
