Opening School to Parents to Promote Migrants’ Inclusion and their Children’s Achievement (OEPRE)
The program called Opening School to Parents to Promote Migrants’ Inclusion and their Children’s Achievement (Ouvrir l’Ecole aux Parents pour la Réussite des Enfants (OEPRE)) targets immigrant parents having children enrolled in the French school system. It consists of free school-based training including French language courses, sessions on the functioning, and the expectations of the school system, and sessions on the principles and values of the French Republic. The objective of OEPRE is twofold: (1) improving children’s success by promoting parental involvement in school and (2) fostering immigrant parents’ integration in French society.
This pilot is run in partnership with the French Ministry of National Education and the Ministry of Interior and is supported by BNP Paribas.
