Do Parents' and Teachers' Views of Children's Educational Resilience Matter?
Rautiainen, Riitta; Räty, Hannu; Kasanen, Kati
Educational Studies, v41 n5 p471-475 2015
This study set out to examine parents' and teachers' perceptions of children's educational resilience. As expected, the parents attributed greater levels of educational resilience to their children than did the teachers. However, both the parents and teachers assessed the sixth graders' educational resilience as higher than that of the third graders. The results suggest that perceptions of educational resilience may represent a different dimension from views relating to children's achievement in school.
