Chapter 2 contains exercises to stimulate teacher thinking on the purpose, nature, and goals of parental involvement, especially in regard to Indian and Metis parents. Chapter 3 focuses on some of the questions and concerns of many Indian and Metis parents in regard to participation in school activities. Chapter 4 offers suggestions and guidelines to school administrators for implementing policies regarding parental involvement in school divisions (districts).
