Abstract:

Parental involvement is a key predictor of a student's academic success. However, little research has explored whether parent, student, and teacher perceptions are similar regarding what constitutes parental involvement and the communication activities it entails. The present study examines parent, student, and teacher perceptions of parental involvement and communication. While agreement exists on the importance of monitoring a child's academic performance and constructive teacher-parent communication, disagreement on the role of discipline and the use of extracurricular programs exist. Two discourses surrounding parental involvement are articulated--information transmission and partnership--and the implications of these discourses for developing parental involvement interventions are examined.

Keywords: Parental involvement; information transmission; partnership
