Involving Parents in the Education of Their Children. ERIC Digest.
Brown, Patricia Clark
The involvement of parents in the education of their children is briefly discussed. Discussion focuses on ways to involve parents, ways to reach parents, and difficulties in involving parents. It is asserted that the suggestions offered in this ERIC Digest can help teachers involve parents who might not otherwise be involved. While an individual teacher may be able to implement a parent involvement program alone, doing so may be difficult. Program implementation will be facilitated if the school as a whole is committed to a parent involvement program. In addition to facilitating program implementation, administrative staff can offer help and support to teachers. Six references are cited for further reading on the topic. (RH)
