Cities across Europe are trying to meet the challenge of a pluralist society, especially in education. This book presents the findings of four years of research and trials undertaken by the DIECEC Network (Developing Intercultural Education through Cooperation between European Cities). Their work with 18 cities starts from the premise of a positive attitude to diversity and to transformational cooperation in its work on raising the standards of black and bilingual pupils. It takes a whole-community and multilevel approach to ensuring that schools endorse the richness and diversity of people from differing linguistic, religious, cultural and social heritages. This book synthesizes the proven practical measures that have improved pupils' school performance.
