Quadri, Khadijat O.
Online Submission
Purpose: The purpose of this position paper was to examine the impact of school based parent involvement activities on parent efficacy. Methodology: The paper explores research studies into school based activities on long term parent efficacy. Conclusions: Most schools are involving parents in school-based activities in a variety of ways but the evidence shows that there is little, if any on parental efficacy and subsequent learning and achievement of preschool children. Recommendations: Some studies suggest little to no impact on parent efficacy for parents who participated in school parent activities. Other research studies indicate that activities that are knowledge based and culturally sensitive are more likely to increase parent efficacy in child's learning. An in-depth study of mandated Head Start parent activities is needed to determine the impact of these activities on parent efficacy
