Introduction or: who are the migrants coming to the Czech republic and where do they come from?
Welcome to the informative web portal Inkluzivní škola (inclusive school)!
This portal is determined mainly for Czech teachers, therefore the English version is only informative to make an elementary idea what teachers can find here.
This portal is dedicated to the issues of education and inclusion of pupils, who grew up and were brought up in a different environment, both culture- and languagewise. Their knowledge of Czech language is often insufficient or non-existant and yet they are expected to become a part of the educational process in a relatively short time. This situation is not easy neither for the foreign children, nor for the teachers, who have to deal with the situation. This portal was created by META, o.p.s. Association for the Oportunities for Young Migrants on teachers requests for an informative and methodoligical source, which would focus on work with this diverse group of pupils.
The portal is divided into a few thematic parts and also provides a lot of method-based materials and worksheets to download, examples of best practices, contacts, professional essays etc. This brief introduction will tell you How to navigate through the pages.
This section is dedicated to the issues of migration and its relationship to education. The topics presented here are important for us to understand the situations that foreign pupils and their parents get into. The system of education is often difficult for parents to understand. That can be the cause of many problems that Czech parents don´t know about and have never had to deal with.

Not only will you find statistics here, you also will find an overview of basic legislation defining the stay of foreigners in the Czech Republic.
