The Project

Promoting parental involvement in school life, especially intensifying the involvement of parents with an immigration background, has been at all events a marginal topic in Teacher Education and In-service Teacher Education in Europe.

The project aims at developing materials, which will be a suitable foundation for school-specific programmes to improve parental involvement. The addressees of these materials are teachers, in particular head teachers and class teachers, but also other school personnel working in advisory and support systems. These groups of people are to be empowered to motivate those parents who have as yet not been involved to help in organising and improving school life, so that the educational opportunities of their children will be increased and enhanced.
