Some take basic education as adults. - In primary education for adults 9 of 10 minorities, but in secondary education constitutes adults of immigrant background only 1 out of 5 - Children, young people and adults with immigrant backgrounds have generally weaker learning results, have problems in getting an apprenticeship, and complete secondary education in undergraduate degree than those born in Norway and has at least one Norwegian parent. - Those who have immigrated, performing generally weaker than those born in Norway to immigrant parents, which performs slightly weaker than other pupils. - Norwegian-born to immigrant parents from EU etc. is a small selected group that stands out positively. - Much of the differences in school achievement and accomplishment can be linked to parents' educational background. - Educational background still has less impact on school performance of immigrant students than other students. This is especially true for students with parents without higher education, where immigrant students perform better than other Norwegian students. - Norwegian-born with immigrant parents stand out positively in that a relatively low proportion of those aged between 16 and 21 are not in education or work.
