Main Article Content
The joint education of children, pupils and students from a different cultural background within mainstream education is one of the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports’ priorities. Laws in force guarantee children’s right to so-called support measures, which help to overcome their disadvantages. In our research survey, our objective is to chart the improvement in conditions promoting equal opportunities in the education of children from a different cultural background. The primary documents analysed were legislative and curricular documents, programmes and projects at a national and European level. We have modelled the entire topic on the example of supporting children from a different cultural background; children of foreigners, or children with a different mother tongue who live in the Czech Republic, and on the example of supporting Czech children living in EU countries, visiting European schools which provide a multilingual and multicultural education.
Keywords: Pupils from a different cultural background, legislative documents, different mother tongue, European School.
