The belgian focus group took place on 11th January 2018 from 5 to 7.There were 9 families present during this focus group. To facilitate communication, we divided the participants into three tables with, for each, a ‘facilitator’. Every 15-20min, the participants mixed and changed tables and the facilitator summarized what had been said in the previous group and then the conversation started again. It had been decided to separate the youngest children in a separate room and to make an animation with them so that they could also express themselves around the theme of school. Young teens and children who wished could stay with their parents and participate in discussion tables.
Below is a summary of the main points heard during the conversation tables.
