Retórica política de la inmigración educativa en Cataluña (España) y realidad del aula
MetadataShow full item record
There has been a notable evolution in immigration over the last ten years, with obvious effects on the education system. This increase, mainly concentrated in the public sector, has been a serious challenge for the administration and schools. Despite efforts made in the design of policies, contingency plans and allocation of resources, the results can still be improved. In Catalonia, after an observation period, the emphasis has been placed on organising the various levels of administration to carry out an efficient intervention. In practice, regarding foreign students, this has meant adopting compensatory policies focused on social cohesion and multiculturalism. This article is a review of educational policies in Catalonia, with a specific analysis of the multicultural practices applied to education in a primary school. This article is part of a report on immigration policies on education, with examples of schools that apply intercultural communication in four regions of Spain (see Martínez Usarralde, 2010).
