Precarious living conditions, war and flight traumas, cramped living conditions and lack of language skills are just some of the factors that make it difficult for people with a migration background to participate in educational opportunities. This is not only true for children and young people, but also for women in particular, especially mothers.
In Austria, the educational level of the parents is still decisive for the school success of the children. On average, people with a migration background have a lower level of education and thus also a lower occupational status of their parents. In addition, precarious social problems are increasing in urban areas such as Vienna. Together with demographic challenges, this lowers the chances of learning success. This applies to school careers, successful graduation and the acquisition of various skills. We counteract this with our free services at the LenZ Learning and Family Centre.
