More on Letitia M. Zwickert

As a Fulbright-Schuman Scholar, Letitia performed a qualitative comparative case study from January to June of 2016, assessing best practices in education for migrants and minorities in France, Luxembourg and Belgium. Her study tried to answer how education in these countries supports all high school children, regardless of their social or cultural heritage, by looking at best practices at the teacher, administrative, and Ministry levels.
