Parents' Involvement in School: Attitudes of Teachers and School Counselors
Dor, Asnat
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 11 p921-935 2012
This qualitative study compares the attitudes of teachers and school counselors toward parents' involvement in school. The method and procedure is: A semi-structured interview (four open questions on informing parents about school, the child, strengths, and challenges) was conducted with 12 Israeli elementary-school teachers and 11 Israeli elementary-school counselors. The results are: Teachers and counselors saw the importance of parents' involvement in school, although each group expressed different benefits and professional reinforcement derived from their interactions with parents. Teachers expressed more personal difficulties dealing with some parents than did counselors who referred to challenges mostly from an ethical-professional perspective. Implications of the findings are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
