The Negotiation of the Relationship between Home and School in the Mind of Grade 6 Students in an International School in Qatar
Frangie, Maha
Journal of Research in International Education, v16 n3 p225-235 Dec 2017
This paper aims at deepening the understanding of how the relation between home and school is negotiated in the mind of Grade 6 students attending an International Baccalaureate (IB) school in Qatar. Students reported mainly frustration and confusion. The Thematic Coding Analysis used in the study revealed two strategies students use to negotiate between the different settings, including submitting to parental authority and raising their parents' awareness about IB. The analysis also highlighted the importance of student voice in bridging the gap between home and school.
