Immigrant centres, 1969

This memorandum - submitted to the House of Commons Select Committee on Race Relations, which was conducting an inquiry into problems facing 'coloured school leavers' - summarises the methods used by local authorities trying to integrate immigrant children. The crucial question was whether it was best to teach pupils in induction centres or in ordinary schools. Education authorities recognised the importance of providing special facilities to ensure that immigrant children learned English as quickly as possible - but were aware that if the children did not attend ordinary schools that could create an even greater sense of isolation.
