In the world’s richest countries, some children do worse at school than others because of circumstances beyond their control, such as where they were born, the language they speak or their parents’ occupations. These children enter the education system at a disadvantage and can drop further behind if educational policies and practices reinforce, rather than reduce, the gap between them and their peers.

In Czech Republic Palacký University Olomouc is a university with long-standing tradition.

Rainer Hawlik (PH Wien) was invited to present concepts and ideas of KINDINMI during the conference „Interkulturalität und Mehrsprachigkeit in der schulischen Praxis“, which took place on 20th and 21st of April 2018 in Linz (Austria) at PH Oberösterreich.
Hawlik gave an insight on challenges and chances of mother tongue tuition, especially in the field of transition from elementary school to primary school. Mother tongue tuition teachers could play a crucial role as mentors for kids, owning a low social economic and low social cultural status, while struggling at the same time with norms and values of a so-called majority society.
