Your school wants to improve the integration of newcomers and other children and/or parents with a migrant background. The first thing you have to do is find out what the problem is that you are trying to solve.


At this stage it is necessary to have those involved, such as students, parents, teachers, others in the school team, community workers, think broadly about what challenges newcomer integration. It is important that everybody keeps an open mind and shares their insights on what they think the problem is.


You could start with separate groups of students, teachers, parents, etc. or you can bring them all together. Either way, it is important that your method and questions will bring to the surface a broad range of insights into your problem.
