The proposed symposium focuses on the role of extended education in addressing the challenges of societal changes including family changes and increased
complexity of educational processes at times of global change and uncertainty. Forms of extended education are being explored in numerous nations around
the world. Examples are extended education offerings as “All-day schools” in Germany, "Outside school hours care" in Australia or "Out-of-school time" in UK.
These approaches have been designed to promote the development of school-age children and youth supplementing formal education. They aim in particular to
offer a means to support students who are educationally disadvantaged, e.g. because of their socio-economic background or due to cultural or linguistic
characteristics. Meta-analyses of US studies show that non-formal education can be successful in promoting disadvantaged students in their academic
achievement or social skills. However, other studies show that it is precisely the target group of the particularly disadvantaged pupils that does not benefit from
the offerings as desired. The symposium presents empirical papers that will give insights into the ambiguous state of evidence from the perspective of studies
from different education systems around the globe.
