10 Educational policy and immigration By immigrants we mean refugees, migrants, remigrants, other foreigners and asylum seekers. (The National Board of Education in Finland)

11 Educational policy and immigration rights based on the Equality Act preparatory instruction (one year) young immigrants (7-17+) have got a similar right to basic and further education as Finns instruction of Finnish/Swedish (S2), 3h/week instruction of pupil’s mother tongue, 1h/week assistants during lessons special education curricula of S2 and mother tongue, other subjects according to the general curriculum

12 Situation in bigger towns several preparatory classes Finnish and Swedish as second language teachers and –classes assistants more easily available interpreters used e.g. in cooperation between school and home coordinating teachers pupils with different backgrounds in the same class (+/- ?)

13 Situation in Hyökkälä school 20 immigrant pupils in Tuusula 6 immigrant pupils in Hyökkälä school no S2 instruction separately classes 1-6: teacher of special education and class teacher give one S2 lesson per week each classes 7-9: teacher of Finnish as a mother tongue tries to differentiate during the ordinary mother tongue and litterature lessons there is no mother tongue instruction for the immigrant pupils (8-10 pupils per language required for a separate group in Tuusula) pupils participate ordinary classes in different subjects (taught in Finnish) problems in Tuusula are similar to the ones in rural areas and smaller towns; it’s up to the municipality to decide how to organise instruction for immigrants
