Educating immigrants' children in France

After-school programme aims to bring children of immigrants into the fold and stem dropout rates.

    The winner of France's presidential poll faces the challenge of integrating the country's immigrant population, and educating the children of immigrants, whose parents are often isolated from the system, is a key part of that.

    In Clichy-sous-Bois, just outside Paris, one in five student drops out of school - a common thing in France's poorer neighbourhoods.

    But one educator who believes integration starts in school has been putting his ideas into practice, focusing on not letting the children of immigrants fall between the cracks.
