The Social Networking provides an online space for teachers to develop a European network in which institutions, parents and teachers themselves will share suggestions on the subject of teaching in a multicultural environment as well as multicultural school experiences.

The main aim of this report is to analyse cultural integration and the consequent problems faced by teachers in multicultural situations. As a result of the emphasis given to the challenges of the educational work, Multicultural Schools provides a deep and comprehensive understanding of the issue: this enables the reader to discern the effective problem-solving skills employed by teachers and to understand the children’s and teacher’s needs.

Furthermore, a test in support of the report has been administered to a sample of teachers to help them examine their own attitudes about cultural diversity in EU society and to unveil aspects of a teacher’s education concerning diversity.
