The Effects of Parents’ Work Migration over the School Results of High School Pupils

    () (University of Petroșani, Romania)


In the present study I start from considering the family and school as social systems and the pupil from a four-dimensional perspective. The influence of the relations inside the family is realized according to the symmetrical relations pointed out by Cattell and the relating triangles shown by Benedek. The relations at school through which the pupil is gaining academic and social skills have been represented according to Păun. Adolescence is a period of personality reorganization for every individual. The work hypothesis of this study is: if the adolescent pupil’s parents (mother, father or both) migrate, then modifications will occur at several levels. As a conclusion we can draw the need for the establishment of assistance centers for the pupils, parents, teachers and authorities.
