Abstract

A student of foreign origin is in the condition of making a school choice in a more complex situation than that of an Italian peer. Statistics describe a no optimal situation: foreign origin students tend to prefer less demanding trainings and they tend to less consider the possibility of addressing curricula of academic level. In addition to its interests and its attitudes and skills, the student have to consider family expectations that are not always consistent with those of the host culture. For this reason, he is often asked to make choices that require higher levels of mediation and, sometimes, to sacrifice more consistently its expectations or to make risky choices because not completely congruent with his capabilities. The objective of this article is to identify some critical factors related to school choice of foreign origin students, with particular attention to those of the second generation, to highlight the role that parents and teachers may have in this process and to provide insights on some aspects that deserve special attention.
