Why I'm Not Involved: Parental Involvement from a Parent's Perspective
Choi, Jung-ah
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n3 p46-49 Nov 2017
Among educational researchers and practitioners, parent involvement tends to be described as a wholly positive experience, benefitting parents, teachers, and children alike. However, the author--a university professor originally from South Korea--explains that her early interactions with her son's teachers have been one-sided and fraught with misunderstandings. As she explains, issues of race, culture, and trust have made her reluctant to be an involved parent.
