News From Home. School Based Action - Research
AbstractIn the following article I present an action-research project developed in two schools from Pitesti, county Arges, with an Open Society Institute (OSI) grant. I made a plan for the first data gathering (questionnaire, focus group guide for parents and for children) and I made another plan for the intervention faze, with the amendment that it could change after the data from the research were gathered. After this, I gathered a team and apply for a grant in an OSI initiative named “Advancing Educational Inclusion and Quality in South East Europe”. The intervention aimed parents that work abroad and their participation to school’s life. The research was datadriven and continued with the action, letters written to parents in the form of small narrative report. Those letters were sent and composed by the school psychologist, with the help of teachers from the school, with the help of a professional psychological cabinet and with my help.
