At the conference of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in Toronto at the beginning of April, the team of the LIfBi refugee study “ReGES–Refugees in the German Educational System” presented their research design as well as first findings on the school integration of refugees. The project group also addressed different conditions for the integration of refugees and the use of care facilities for families with preschool children. “Many are concerned with questions about the opportunities of young refugees in their transition to vocational training. We will be able to answer these and other questions with ReGES in the coming years,” says Dr. Jutta von Maurice, Head of the study financed by the German Ministry for Education and Research. In addition, first findings on German-language proficiency of young refugees were discussed during an international session organized by the liaison office “International Cooperation in Education” (ice).
