Approaches to cultural diversity in the Danish education system : the case of public schools
This report shall discuss the relative absence of policies or even discourses, of multi- or intercultural accommodation in the Danish school system Â– particularly at a central level. It will also asses the important steps taken in recent years to address low achievement levels among migrant children Â– by any standard the most pressing problem, whatever oneÂ’s position on models of migrant inclusion. However, it will also question some of the ambivalences of these steps and the way that these reflect a specific Danish Â‘takeÂ’ on migration management in schools. Finally Â– by way of conclusion Â– it will present some critical remarks on the paradoxes of a Danish public school system which, while understanding itself as the spearhead of egalitarian modernism appears to reproduce exactly the types of social differences and segregations most abhorred in Danish political culture.
