School attendance of refugee children and juveniles is a chartered right according to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Moreover, the school itself can be a place for the children to cope with their difficult circumstances. Therefore it is addressed in its role as a “safe place”. On the basis of empirical findings of a teaching research project we will elaborate the particular role as well as the possibilities of school social work in the context of flight. Furthermore, we will reconstruct the perspectives of the different participants on school and education.
