School-Based Parental Involvement: A Comparative Assessment of Predictors of Satisfaction in South-East Europe
Radu, Roxana
Educational Studies, v39 n2 p167-182 2013
Exploring a unique region concerning educational reforms in the past 20?years, the present study empirically investigates the attitudes towards parental involvement in school life in a comparative perspective of south-eastern European (SEE) countries for the 2008/2009 school year. Based on a multiple regression model for nine different countries, the research examines the predictors of satisfaction with school-parent partnerships from the parents' perspective in the SEE context. The 2009 Cross-National Survey of Parents provided detailed evidence of attitudes and practices in educational setups in the Balkans for a representative sample of parents with one or more children enrolled in primary or secondary education. The findings indicate that the most reliable explanatory variable for the parents' satisfaction with ways of getting involved in school life is the attribution of school-parent roles, with effects knocking on to all the other factors, including the understanding of the need to participate and the feeling of being a stakeholder in the educational process. (Contains 3 tables and 5 notes.)
