It is organized in five sections:
- In the first section, we look at the educational attainment of first and second generation immigrants in Europe, as compared to the US.
- In the second section, we consider how language skills affect the educational outcomes and the integration of immigrants.
- In the next two sections, we investigate how the organization of schools and the characteristics of teachers influence the educational outcomes of both children with an immigrant background and native children.
- In the final section, we discuss whether higher education can affect the attitudes of the native population towards immigrants and thereby favour their integration.
