Parental Belief and Parental Engagement in Children's Learning
Goodall, J.; Ghent, K.
British Journal of Religious Education, v36 n3 p332-352 2014
This article reports on a small scale study, examining the influence of parental faith belief on parental engagement with children's learning. The literature surrounding parental engagement and the impact of familial belief on children's outcomes is examined. It is clear from work in the US that familial faith belief has an impact; however, the previous literature is almost entirely quantitative in nature and does not reflect the faith make up of the UK. The article then reports the results of an online survey of parents, examining parental perception of the impact of belief, of faith/belief group and other issues on their engagement with their children's learning. Analysis of the results are presented, and contextualised for the UK.
