English This paper is a commentary on Boulanger’s (2019) work entitled “Social Representations of parental engagement in poor context: Empty parents and Full Teachers.” More particularly, my goal is to highlight some crucial aspects that are promoted by the author in order to move the view of the school-familycommunity partnerships toward a less school-centered perspective. Through a review of the analyses of representations and tensions between fullness and emptiness, the commentary aims to move forward the Boulanger’s (2019) claim and to consider the interactional space between school and family from an ethnographic point of view.
