The Impact of Parent Education on Parent Satisfaction toward Public Schools
Anderson, Amy Ruth
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Texas A&M University - Commerce
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether or not focused activities related to Epstein's (1995) model of parent involvement would impact parents satisfaction with the school their child attends. This study examined parental beliefs about schools and how those beliefs impact their levels of involvement. A mixed method research design was used for this study. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected from a questionnaire given annually within a school district selected for this study. The findings indicated that parent perceptions were not directly linked to parent education activities. The findings indicated that parents have high levels of satisfaction with the school their child attends but list areas for improvement through their qualitative comments. All of the data found in this study confirm that both of these schools exhibit strong parental partnerships enhanced by Epstein's types of parent involvement.
