Secure attachment relationships play an important protective role against the intergenerational transmission of social exclusion, not only in early stages, but at all school levels. With LET’S CARE we can comprehensively understand and improve the care dimension of educational inclusion and school success.
The main objective of the project is to identify the determinants that affect student safety as the main cause of underachievement, disengagement and dropout, at four different ecological levels: individual, relational, community and political. LET’S CARE creates a theoretical and practical framework that promotes Safe Learning, Safe Teaching, Safe Schools and Safe Education at every level. This approach helps to break the chain of transgenerational transmission of educational and social exclusion, which will result in lower rates of school failure and early school dropout.
The main advance is to consider a relational response to exclusion and educational inequality. The new model provides insight into the importance of safety in addressing underachievement in reading, math and science, among others. Likewise, the proposal is based on a relational approach to inclusive school practices that translates into tools, recommendations and guidelines for action, from early childhood education and care to Secondary and Second Chance Schools.
