Lessons from the local level – DACA’s Implementation and Impact on Education and Training Success

Immigration is arguably more intertwined with the education and training field today than at any other time in recent U.S. history. The barriers to legal status and postsecondary education that unauthorized immigrant youth face have earned a special place in national and state policy debates as result of the advocacy of youth who have come to be known as DREAMers.

A Clear Agenda for Migrant Education in Europe

Education remains a critical element of government policy in the twenty-first century. A society with strong educational outcomes will realise people’s full potential and give them a better chance for economic and social development. Strong education systems allow societies to become equitable and meritocratic at the same time, facilitating both social mobility and social inclusion. Education empowers people to participate fully in the community and strengthens democracies.

Language Support for Youth with a Migrant Background: Policies that Effectively Promote Inclusion

It is crucial for children of migrant background in Europe to become proficient in their host country's main language of instruction. Lack of proficiency stands in the way of students' ability to comprehend and follow lessons, which in turn can lead to poor academic performance, lack of interest in education, and even behavioral problems. To avoid such outcomes for migrant children, schools should provide sufficient support for youth to learn and master the language of instruction.
