Scottish Study Identifies Problems with Assimilation of Migrant Children

Schools 'hamper' migrant children
Many migrant children are taking a long time to settle in at school because staff are not given enough resources to deal with them, a study has said.

The HM Inspectorate of Education report said many migrant children were underachieving in Scotland as a result.
Inspectors said staff had not been given enough guidance on dealing with migrant children.
The report also said many education authorities had yet to adjust to record high migration levels.
