Parents' Reports of School Practices to Provide Information to Families: 1996 and 2003
Vaden-Kiernan, Nancy
Journal for Vocational Special Needs Education, v27 n3 p15-29 Spr 2005
This Statistics in Brief analyzes parents' reports of school practices to provide information to families, using data from the 2003 Parent and Family Involvement in Education Survey and the 1996 Parent and Family Involvement in Education and Civic Involvement Survey of the National Household Education Surveys Program. Parent reports of school information practices to involve parents in their children's education are described and are examined in relation to family involvement at school, and school, family, and student characteristics. Results show that in both 1996 and 2003 the average number of parent-reported school information practices done "very well" was positively related to the frequency of the family's involvement at school. The average number of school information practices reported by parents as being done "very well" in both survey years was three out of seven practices. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
