Defining Parental Involvement: Perception of School Administrators
Young, Clara Y.; Austin, Sheila M.; Growe, Roslin
Education, v133 n3 p291-297 Spr 2013
There remains a plaguing question of how to get parents involved with their child's education. Many parents and educators have different perceptions of what parental involvement means. Miscommunication between the two groups often exists because of how parental involvement is conceptualized. While educators define parental involvement as being involved in the education process by helping in the school and helping out with homework (Anderson & Minke, 2007), parents see parental involvement as getting their children to school on time and solving issues at home that involve them.
