A Tale of Two Cities: Bridging Families and Schools
Agirdag, Orhan; Van Houtte, Mieke
Educational Leadership, v68 n8 p42-46 May 2011
Two innovative programs in Belgium promote both educational equity and quality as they reach out to ethnically diverse families. The Bridge Person project in Ghent addresses Belgium's immigrant achievement gap by creating meaningful relationships between schools and socially disadvantaged families. The School in Sight project in Antwerp seeks to achieve desegregation by bringing more middle-class students into schools that enroll a majority of low-income and immigrant students.
