Keywords:International immigrants, School directive management, Pedagogical management, Educational Policies, Recognition
The article addresses the problem of immigration of international students in the Chilean educational system, collecting empirical evidence regarding the challenges of directive management and pedagogical management that the process of installing the new public educational institution in Chile faces. In this framework, the objective of the work is to elaborate a typology of the forms of implementation of the migratory policy at the school level, of the procedures adopted by the educational management and, finally, of the teaching practices related to the inclusion of immigrants. For this purpose, the analysis is carried out, from the Grounded Theory perspective, of semi-structured interviews applied to directive teachers and classroom teachers of school establishments, regarding situations in the context of which they have had to attend to emerging needs from the presence of international immigrant students. Finally, it ends by underlining the need to move from the stage of respect for rights to that of full recognition of the dignity of international immigrants.
