Educational integration of young refugees: It depends on where you live


The way in which young refugees arrive in the German education system depends in the federal school system to a large extent on the federal state in which they live. In a new study, researchers from the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) and Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) show the influence of the education policies of federal states on the school entry of young refugees. According to the study, the refugees often waited a long time to start school, were initially often enrolled in classes for new immigrants, and attended comparatively often lower forms of school. This limits their further educational progress, in some cases early on in the integration process, due to the often low permeability of the German school system.
