The paper is the result of a long term observation and of my personal experience put in the context of n in-depth reflection, based on the documentation focused on the theoretical aspects involved understood and connected among them.The leading role of education, in connection to heredity and background, for the complex process of developing the human character is put into the context of the new manifestation of migration nowadays, at the beginning of this new millennium.This role is considered in connection with the processes of enculturation, acculturation, and cultural adaptation in the context of changing the status of an emigrant to the status of an immigrant.The specific issues of migration nowadays are briefly but openly approached. The way in which education is involved in each of the mentioned processes is synthetically presented. The paper opens routes for further development of reflections upon the educational priorities in the years to come. Even if it is an already debated issue, the core topic of this paper seems to become crucial these years when new faces of migration appear to be a priority of humanity concern. The paper tries to suggest that proper formal education, well designed, creatively and effectively implemented and carefully assessed and managed can support in a positive way the synergy of informal and no-formal education in different contexts of human lives. This synergy can be the fundamental of genuine well-being, even if this concept itself is strongly subjective.
