Are Schools Meeting Their Clients' Expectations? Parents Voice Their Perceptions about Children Learning to Read in Schools Today
Fletcher, Jo; Greenwood, Janinka; Parkhill, Faye
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n3 p438-446 Apr 2010
This research, as part of a larger project examining effective reading instruction for 10-12 year old students, explores the perceptions of thirteen parents in six schools. The study identified: parents recognise their engagement in reading with their children impacts on children's motivation to read; parents have concerns about the degree to which schools meet children's reading needs; and some parents seek external assessment and support. The study as a whole indicates the importance of effective home school relationships. (Contains 1 table.)
