Immigrant Students and Supplementary School Funding (June 2015 – June 2016)

Schools are among the most important institutions for supporting the integration of immigrants and their families. However, many schools are under financial pressure as they attempt to close achievement gaps and provide effective support to high-need students—including second-language learners and recent immigrants, as well as low-income students and other vulnerable groups. In Germany, only a handful Länder employ a data-driven approach when it comes to providing extra resources to schools which enroll a high share of language learners and low-income students.

This research project seeks to systematically assess methods of supplementary school funding in the 16 Länder as well as select jurisdictions in Canada, France and the United States.

The research is conducted in partnership with the Migration Policy Institute (MPI). The project was funded by the Stiftung Mercator. The results were be published in early 2016.
