The Portrayal of Parents in the School Mathematics Reform Literature: Locating the Context for Parental Involvement.
Peressini, Dominic D.
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v29 n5 p555-82 Nov 1998
Analyzes the positioning of parents in school-mathematics reform literature by using reform recommendations that call for parental involvement as a springboard. Demonstrates how literature has created the accepted discourse for mathematics-education reform and how the professionalization of teachers has distanced parents from schools and led to conflict between parents and mathematics educators. Contains 68 references. (Author/ASK)
