How Ready Are Families to the Education System Waiting for Us in the Future?
International Online Journal of Primary Education, v9 n1 p35-44 2020
The importance of the family factor in the process of providing the child with literacy skills has been demonstrated by many studies. From this point of view, family literacy level emerges as an important factor in developing the literacy skills desired to be given to the child. This importance has increased even more due to the Corona (COVIT-19) virus pandemic, which is experienced all over the world. Because of the fact that educational institutions, including primary education level, have switched to distance education, the time period spent by students with families has increased. According to education experts education system will not be the same after the pandemic. If distance education is made permanent, how ready are families? It is important to take steps towards determining this situation and eliminating possible deficiencies. In addition to the duties of educators and those responsible for education to solve the current problems, there are also preparatory tasks for the expected educational models in the future. If these tendencies are not done correctly and preventions are not taken, great problems may arise in terms of education. In this study, the aim is to determine the family literacy levels of the students' parents who are enrolled in the primary school 1st grade level and to determine how ready they are for this process. This study was designed as a survey model that aims to evaluate family literacy skills in terms of various variables. The study group of the research consists of 460 parents who have children enrolled in the primary education institutions of the first year in the 2019-2020 academic years. Family Literacy Scale was used as data collection tool. In data analysis process, the t-test and ANOVA tests were used. In line with the research, the family literacy levels of the participants were found to be medium.
