INCLUD-ED Family Education

Family Education is one of the Successful Educational Actions (SEAs) identified in the research project INCLUD-ED. It supports the promotion of cultural and educational interactions between students and social agents, and more particularly with family members and enhance students' achievement.

Family Education consists of family and other community members engaging in different learning activities in the school. The learning activities can be very diverse; the only condition to be met is that these activities are defined (the contents, the organisation as well as the schedule) by the participants themselves in order to guarantee that the program directly respond to their needs and interests, and follow a dialogic orientation. Family education is based on previous theories and research that have already demonstrated that the promotion of cultural and educational interactions between students and social agents, and more particularly with family members, enhance students’ achievement. Certain family education and community engagement programmes that promote educational and cultural interactions have led students whose families have only a few books at home or low academic degrees to obtain excellent results in their academic achievement. 

In line with the outstanding scientific approaches of learning sciences, Family Education involve and promote learning interactions with a dialogic approach to learning,  this is, promoting learning processes through dialogues that are egalitarian, that recognize and build upon each person’s cultural intelligence. They seek transformation, enhance the instrumental dimension of dialogue, are based on the value of solidarity, act as sources of creation of meaning, and rely on and promote equal value of different origins.
