OECD Reviews of Migrant Education - Norway
Strong economic performance has attracted immigrants to Norway in recent years. Most migrants come to Norway for humanitarian or family reunification reasons; but increasingly they come to seek work and many have lower socio-economic background than their native peers. The integration of their children has led to a larger proportion of more heterogeneous students in Norwegian schools. In 2006, 8- 10% of students in Norwegian kindergartens, primary, and secondary schools were of immigrant background, although many were born in Norway. There are more than 120 languages spoken in Oslo schools.
