Parents' Involvement among the Arab Ethnic Minority in the State of Israel
Zedan, Raed F.
School Community Journal, v22 n2 p161-182 2012
This study examined parent involvement in children's education among the Israeli Arab population and the degree of influence of various background factors on their involvement. The correlations between parent involvement and pupil achievement were examined in relation to the characteristics of the pupils (i.e., age, gender). About 400 parents participated in this research, and a parent involvement questionnaire was used to measure the degree of involvement. It was found that parents of girls participated and were involved in their daughters' studies more than parents of boys. It was also found that the more parents supported and believed in the importance of learning, the higher their children's achievement was. Regarding age level, it was found that parents of children in elementary schools participated and were more involved in the education of their child than parents of children in secondary schools.
