Log-in for full text

This chapter addresses the context of educational challenges related to immigration in Spain, and outlines how diversity in Spain has shaped the education system since the democratic transition. Next, it gives a historical account of how education policy has shifted from exclusion to segregation to a final incorporation of cultural minorities. Then, the chapter discusses the educational challenges related to the arrival of immigrants in schools. It also considers the framework provided by the Strategic Plan for Citizenship and Integration developed by the Immigration Secretariat (IS). Furthermore, the chapter looks at the approach of the Ministry of Education and Culture by analysing its 'programme for attention to diversity'. Finally, it summarizes the main characteristics of the Spanish approaches and discourses towards the management of migration-related diversity in education.
