This paper summarises the policies and practices in the formal education of immigrant students in Iceland. As participants in the research project Teacher Education Addressing Multiculturalism in Europe (TEAM) with our colleagues in Britain, France, Greece, and Poland we are studying teacher aims and practices in a new educational challenge in Iceland: working with students from multiple countries with various cultural backgrounds and native languages. In this paper we share some preliminary findings on teachers’ visions, aims, and challenges as they work with immigrant students.
