Abstract


Abstract

School failure and early school dropout particularly affect members of certain minority groups such as the gypsy2 population. The obstacles that must be overcome for the members of these groups appear to be related to the discontinuities between the values and goals of community family life and those of the school. This article presents an analysis of obstacles based on the perception of gypsy families and other minority groups who don’t have the same difficulties. The findings of this study help to analyze and understand the characteristics that promote the inclusion through extended education communities based on the Fifth Dimension model within the framework of a project developed in Barcelona with the gypsy and immigrant population.

Keywords: Intercultural education, communities of practice, Roma education, extended education, educational inclusion
