Family education consists, according to the INLCUD-ED guide4, of involving families and other members of the community in various learning activities at school. The learning activities can be very diverse, the only condition is that they are defined (content, organization and timing) by the participants themselves to ensure that the program responds directly to their needs and interests, and that they follow a dialogic orientation. Family education is based on previous theories and research that have already shown that fostering cultural and educational interactions between students and social agents, and more specifically with family members, improves student performance.
