Why Don't Parents Participate in School Health Education?
Winnail, Scott D.; Geiger, Brian F.; Nagy, Stephen
American Journal of Health Education, v33 n1 p10-14 Jan-Feb 2002
Parents of middle school students completed surveys regarding factors that hindered their participation in school health education. Parents were more likely to have low participation levels if they had limited knowledge of opportunities to participate and perceived that the school did not want their participation, the curriculum did not allow for parent involvement, and their participation would embarrass their children.
