System Development

META, o.p.s. - Association for Opportunities of Young Migrants has been dealing with systemic issues of a process of integration pupils with a different mother tongue (pupils with migration experience) for a long time. Czech educational system has a number of barriers, which are caused by a long-term absence of a concept and an anchoring system. Our long-term goal is to create an environment where cultural and linguistic diversity does not mean a problem for education.

In addition to providing counselling and education, we also dedicate to networking of key participants in the field of integration of pupils with DMT. We further focus on legal services that promote systemic changes at the level of legislation, conception and organization of educating pupils with DMT.

We are dealing with the key participants such as Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Ministry of the Interior, the Czech School Inspectorate, representatives of state administration and self-government of towns and villages, specialized educational institutions, directors and teachers of kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, academic workers from faculties of education and other faculties, NGO workers, workers from pedagogical-psychological counselling and also parents with migration experience. Our intent is to support an open discussion within the broad platform of players having an aim to openly discuss about problematic issues from different perspectives and to formulate proposals of system measures.

Shorter version of the expert platform output Education and integration of students with different mother tongues - Suggested arrangements is now available in English.
