Grundtvig Single Parents Summary

Children of near-illiterate families or single parents have low or no chances for education and as a result no perspective for their personal and professional life. Researches in the European Union face coherence between near-illiteracy and (children) poverty. And: Near-illiteracy produces again near-illiteracy and poverty - for whole the life. Near-illiterate persons normally marry partners with same problems. The disadvantages mutually intensify each other. This is the reason of the "social heredity" of near-illitercy.

Researches show that these near-illiterate families need complementary care and education structures to leave this vicious circle. The different countries face different difficulties and experiences with low-educated near-illiterate families and their children. The different countries face different track records and best practise examples. The objective of the learning partnership was to give the target group a forum to express their needs, wishes and their solutions. At the very end the target group and person concerned to near-illiteracy and low education and their children presentet with the help of well experienced staff a resolution, a list of actions to be done for an Europe with equal chances for everyone.
