Parents' and Teachers' Views of the Child's Academic Potential
Karkkainen, Riitta; Raty, Hannu
Educational Studies, v36 n2 p229-232 May 2010
Parents (N = 97) and their child's class-teachers were instructed to rate the child's potential for improvement in mathematics and Finnish. The results showed that there was a moderate correlation between the parents' and teachers' ratings. The parents rated their child's potential more optimistically than the teachers did. Views of malleability may be seen as a potentially important factor in defining the child's educability. (Contains 1 table.)
