Education at a Glance 2007

I går publicerades den årliga rapporten Education at a Glance med jämförelser mellan OECD-länder inom utbildningssektorn. I den sammanfattning som finns om Sverige uppmärksammas för matematikens del särskilt situationen för första och andra generationens invandrare.

The mathematic performance for the first generation of  immigrant students is substantially below those of native Swedish students ... with only Belgium  performing worse on this scale. ...Part of the explanation for the low performance among the first generation of immigrant students could possibly be found in the composition of immigrants and language barriers that prevent students from gaining required proficiencies in mathematics ...

However, Sweden stands out as the country where the second generation of immigrant students makes the greatest improvements in mathematic performance. ...The challenge thus seems to be to provide better support when immigrant children arrive in Sweden and to provide a better integration of first generation of immigrants.
