Egeria Program addresses the issue of migrant students’ inclusion and the handling of interculturality within the educational community. The first time this program was delivered was 2006-2007 academic year. EGERIA Program is a proposal designed for all educational centers in Spain but especially offered to those centers that belong to FERE-CECA (Catholic Schools Federation) that comprises 5,939 educational centers across Spain. The general aim of the project is the inclusion of migrant students through a tool to help teachers and principals to rethink and reorder all areas and structures of the educational center to become more intercultural.
EGERIA program is divided into four parts: a) The school in the world, which provides a theoretical framework and description of the migration phenomenon and how it is addressed at schools; (b) The world in the school, which offers a self-assessment questionnaire of intercultural education in educational communities; (c) The specific proposals of the EGERIA Program to achieve the migrant students’ inclusion within the framework of an intercultural school; d) Selection of appropriate materials, training courses, bibliography, websites, articles and proposals to give practical responses and suggestions to the objectives listed above.
EGERIA program is funded by FERE-CECA (Catholic Schools Federation).
