The Economic Situation of Immigrants in the Spanish Educational System
Ortiz-Marcos, J.M., Fernández-Leyva, C., and Tomé-Fernández, M.
Spain has been the second largest European country in migratory movements, but the economic crisis has not been an obstacle to the immigration flow seen in the country. In many Western European countries, newly arrived immigrants and refugees face high levels of unemployment, marginalization, social exclusion, and discrimination in their new societies. The gratuity and support for access to these measures would undoubtedly favor subsequent processes of equitable development in the school and social environment. The limitation of resources for policies focused on the settlement of the immigrant population is being done at a time when their vulnerability is evident. These consequences are due to the time in which we are currently living, characterized by too many sociopolitical uncertainties and turbulences, where the opportunity, access and material goods are distributed in a clearly unjust manner.
