Abstract

Arguing from a perspective of organizational theory this article shows historical continuities of segregated schooling of migrant children in Berlin. Based on results of a study conducted at Berlin primary schools it is shown how the lack of regulations for Willkommensklassen [“Welcoming Classes”] leads to the development of routines, which mainly rely on historical procedures and are legitimized with historically known legitimations.
