A Generational Case Study of Parental Involvement of Parents from Diverse Backgrounds

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine parental involvement by looking at generational differences among diverse families through the lens of the overlapping spheres of influence for school-family-community partnerships. The study population consisted of one African American family, one Hispanic family and one Caucasian family. Each family was represented by grandparent(s), children, and grandchildren over the age of 18. Findings suggest that parental involvement is still as important today as it was for parents’ decades ago, but was viewed differently based on the family culture. Another finding is the need for developing partnerships with the home, school, and community to enhance opportunities for all parents regardless of background to become involve in their children’s education. The implications for principal training are significant.
