Abstract

This paper presents a summary of the results of a Project carried out by the author on behalf of the Catalan Federation of Parents' Associations (FaPaC), where we identify PAs as a specific and privileged case of family-school relations. The Project intended to assess the potential role Pas could play as intermediary organizations enhancing social integration and analyze thedegree of the relation between the social problem constructed - migrant families' lack of participation as an explanation for the lower school performance of their children - and the institutional projects that should be expected in the Catalan context among PAs.
