Diagnosis of the needs of children and youth fleeing the war in Ukraine

Presented publication is a summary of the report on the diagnosis of the needs of children and youth from Ukraine attending Polish schools or learning remotely in Ukrainian school online.

The diagnosis was carried out in November 2022. Its first part was devoted to how children and adolescents from Ukraine function in Polish schools. The surveys and interviews were addressed to teachers from Polish schools, and from Digital Education Centers (CCEs).

At CCEs, pupils receive support from Ukrainian-speaking teachers in several aspects of education, from doing homework assigned in a Polish school to implementing the program of Ukrainian online schools. The teachers have the opportunity to discuss with children about their challenges at school on a daily basis.

The report presented is a summary of the most important conclusions from the diagnosis. This part is available in Polish only. The more comprehensive report is forthcoming, and it will be translated.
