This chapter highlights the manner in which Newcastle and Bremen's local governments addressed the education of ethnic minority children within two very different national immigration frameworks. It exposes the types of policies and measures that both introduced in order to cater for and promote the integration of their respective migrant pupils. It asserts that neither city has witnessed the problems and obstacles that it has often been argued have been present in other British and German cities. The topics discussed include English and German language acquisition, mother-tongue language classes, educational attainment and the dispersal of ethnic minority pupils in schools in both cities.

Keywords:   Education, Education policies, Language acquisition, Mother-tongue languages, Educational attainment, Religious education
