How Do the Parents of the Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal Feel About Their Involvement in Educational Decisions.
Dawang, Bertha; And Others
Although parent involvement in school decision-making is required by law in Montreal, there is not necessarily a high level of parent participation. This study attempted to discover how parents feel about their involvement in the elementary and high schools. Subjects completing questionnaires included 255 families of the Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal. Findings indicate that 85 percent of parents feel satisfied with the quality of their children's education and 84 percent feel welcome in their children's schools. On the whole, however, parents do not feel as involved in school decision-making as they want to be. They feel particularly deprived in areas that influence children directly such as school closure, recording information about pupils, and reporting pupil progress. Of all activities surveyed, fund raising activities are the ones in which they feel the most involved, yet they feel deprived of influence even in this area. The questionnaire used in the study is included. (Author/JM)
