SIRIUS Policy Network works at local, regional, national and European level to improve education and migration policies. During 2014 several activities have been done in order to inspire policies at all these levels.
MIGRANT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES IN THE BALTIC STATES: STRONG DEPENDENCE ON THE LEVEL OF SCHOOL PREPAREDNESS
The purpose of this policy paper is to explore the national policy measures related to pupils with a migrant background in the three Baltic States: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The paper aims to identify similarities of policy responses to specific educational needs related to migrant background and point out the differences in approaches, bringing forward the examples of successful practice.
The paper serves as an overview of the topic in the Baltic region, which aims to enable mutual learning and inspire the development of most effective strategies in order to shape education policies towards greater inclusiveness to respond to the diverse needs of the learners.
