Abstract: This study aims to explore the parental involvement of Asian immigrant mothers who send their children to American public schools. The data were drawn upon Korean and Chinese immigrant mothers’ experiences on their children’s school education. Immigrant families come to the United States to pursue better opportunities for the family. Although parental involvement was studied broadly in educational research, there is scarce comparable discourse in the study of parental involvement from immigrant mothers’ perspectives in the United States. Based on in-depth interview with Korean and Chinese mothers, the study will examine their parental involvement in order to address the transformation and adjustment in their parental involvement pattern after they immigrated to the United States. Research show that parental involvement has great impact on children’s achievement in school settings (Peng, 1994; Patrikakou , 1997; Li, 2004). This research paid particular attention to how “mother clique” inform their parental involvement, how do their children’s schooling and co-ethnic group experiences in the United States affect their parenting style, and how Korean and Chinese mothers understand the role of public school in relation to their children’s prospect of entry into American society.
