Barriers to Parental Involvement in the Pre-Kindergarten Classroom
Savacool, J. Leigh
Online Submission
Research has shown that parental involvement affects children's achievement more than school procedures especially in the primary years. Researchers have also shown positive effects on children, families, and school when schools and parents continuously support and encourage a child's learning and development. However, there is little research that has been done to help teachers better understand why some parents choose not to be involved with their child's education. Using questionnaires and interviews, this research investigated the barriers and struggles parents face as well as the difficulties teachers face with parents who are not involved in their child's classroom. Appended to this document are: (1) Appendix A: Parent Questionnaire; (2) Appendix B: Teacher Questionnaire; (3) Appendix C: Parent Interview; and (4) Appendix D: Teacher Interview. (Contains 3 figures.)
