How schools integrate children from other countries?
MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation examines how schools and teachers integrate children who have come to live in this country: children who do not necessarily speak English and are unlikely to be familiar with British culture. The study has considered how teachers measure and overcome this disadvantage, ensuring the immigrant child can meet the same standard of education as a British child of the same age. A qualitative approach was undertaken in analysing the literature and other information gained during the research. The literature review was undertaken to inform the nature of the study. Readers required a basic underlying knowledge of immigration and a history of immigration is initially outlined. Professional literature examining the concepts of immigration and education and the effect on teachers are also addressed. lntegration and its effect on pupils are subsequently considered as is the concept of integration within the community and the importance of integrating children into schools. A qualitative method was employed, using semi-structured interview formats to gather the information.
