The school-family relationship as a key to success in school and in the transition phase of students with a migrant background
Keywords:orientation, family, inclusion, partecipation, school
The contribution raises the issue of parental involvement as a key to educational success for students. Participation in school life becomes fundamental above all in the moment of transition to high school, precisely because there are dynamics in the choice of the path that are often not in line with the wishes and skills of the children. Within a broader research work that is taking place in some secondary schools of I and II degree in the Roman territory, which focuses on students with migration background and guidance practices, some in-depth interviews were carried out with a group of parents participating in the afternoon activities of the I.C. Poseidone, a school on the outskirts of Rome which, by presenting a high number of students with a migratory background in the student population, has chosen to invest resources and time, opening the school spaces to organize training courses aimed mainly at foreign parents, thus becoming a reference point for the neighborhood. The interviews collected have brought out important points of reflection on the work of inclusion that educational institutions should carry out.
