Education of refugee children in Poland
BAS (2022) INFOS 5(297), Education of refugee children in Poland
Polish schools are currently facing the challenge of accommodating a large group of refugee pupils from Ukraine in a relatively short time frame. This requires adjustment of the existing legal framework, as well as infrastructural and staff preparation. In addition to learning the Polish language, which is a prerequisite for integration into the school community and enables the teaching process to take place, it is essential to provide professional psychological support to the pupils. The school should adapt refugee children from Ukraine to functioning in the Polish environment and, at the same time, not prevent them from returning to the Ukrainian education system, and ultimately to Ukraine and Ukrainian schools.
