Doubly Disadvantaged? Children and Young People with a Migration Background in the German Education System

Expert Report I May 2016

The Expert Council's Research Unit shows in this expert report that children and young people from immigrant families are doubly disadvantaged over their entire educational careers: as a result of their immigrant background, but even more importantly due to their social origin. This is the result of an in-depth analysis of the current research on the double disadvantage conducted by the Expert Council's Research Unit. Based on the analysis, the expert report provides recommendations for policy and practice as well as for future research.
