International School Educators and Their Children: Implications for Educator-Parents, Colleagues and Schools
Zilber, Ettie
Journal of Research in International Education, v4 n1 p5-22 2005
What is the impact of the international school experience on the children of educators who live and study in close proximity with their parents and parents' colleagues? In this study, educators, who are teachers, counselors, specialists and administrators, describe their impressions of the benefits and challenges of this unique expatriate family experience. Many of the challenges are due to the multiple, and sometimes blurred, roles of both the educator-parents and their children. Raising children overseas within the international school context, however, was evaluated by most participants as a positive and rewarding experience for all members of the family.
