Conceptualizing School Education Wellbeing for Migrant Girlhood in Germany
The primary purpose of this paper is to analyze strengths and vulnerabilities of migrant origin girls in the context of girlhood; and how school education as a primary sphere for children and youth could become a realm for supporting girlhood development. This research also aims to analyze in-depth, if girls from immigrant origin have specific needs to feel well in school education. Accordingly, the core research concept of this research is school education wellbeing. Education plays a critical role during child and youthhood. For example, youth, who feel that they belong to a school community have more meaning in life (Juvonen et al. 2006); are likely to be healthy (Lippman et al., 2011), to perform higher academically and to be more motivated in school (Cohen et al., 2009); and less likely to engage in risky behaviours (Currie et al., 2012).
