Scientists write about the need to develop special measures, educational programs aimed at integrating migrant children into a new socio-cultural environment, and organizing comprehensive educational work with migrant children. It is also pointed out that the teaching and learning process of migrant children should include the study of the personality of a migrant student as a socio-pedagogical phenomenon, to the justification of the specifics of the goals, content and methods of educational work with migrant children in a foreign cultural educational environment.
