Abstract
 
Copenhagen City has since 2000 worked to fulfill policy aims and visions for integration in a democratic society. This integration provides equal opportunities in education, where teachers are able to empower pupils with ethnic minority background. The Copenhagen mayor for education and schools Per Bregengaard will focus on this issue.
Two schools give examples of how they work. Raadmandsgades School is a primary school for 6-14 years students. They integrate the minority children in language groups. The other school Heimdalsgades Overbygningsskole is a secondary school with 14-17 years old pupils. It has innovated the curriculum and the students take part in the decisions of the school.
Finally a consultant from the Development and Planning Unit in the Educational Department in Copenhagen City will explain the efforts to perform a special Copenhagen PISA survey and a massive in-service training for the teachers.
