Parent Involvement as Ritualized Practice
Doucet, Fabienne
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v42 n4 p404-421 Dec 2011
This article examines parent involvement (PI) as a ritual system using Turner's concept of root paradigms. Through a twofold analysis, I argue that the highly ritualized nature of PI practices creates a group identity among mainstream parents and schools that marginalizes diverse families. First, I point out three root paradigms in the ritual system of PI. Second, I provide an empirical example using the experiences of Haitian immigrant parents in greater Boston.
