Due to refugee crisis more schools are facing problems to accommodate new migrants. But OECD Education director, Andreas Scheilder says that detail study of international tests reveals that migrated children are more as an asset rather than problem to their schools.

Migrants have been observed with much more potential and motivation to acquire education and their parents are found to be more ambitious as well.

These hungry-to-learn immigrants achieve better results than their fellow classmates.

In 1954, U.S opened doors for Syrian immigrants. The then migrant Steve Jobs not only became the most successful entrepreneur but also revolutionalised industries from personal computers to mobile phones and many more.
