Parental Involvement in Mathematics: Giving Parents a Voice
Wilder, S.
Education 3-13, v45 n1 p104-121 2017
Understanding why parents become involved in their children's education is crucial in strengthening the relationship between parental involvement and academic achievement. The present study focuses on the parental role construction and parental self-efficacy. The resulting trends suggest that parents, regardless of their self-efficacy, may assume the "equal partnership-focused" parental role regarding their children's mathematics education. The results also demonstrate that there may be a conflict in the way parents and teachers construct this parental role. While parents assumed the "equally shared" role, teachers maintained the belief that the responsibility, although shared to a certain degree, should be primarily on teachers.
