Parents' Perceptions of the School
In their study of 2,317 inner-city elementary and middle school
students, Dauber and Epstein (1993) determined that parents'
perceptions of their children's school are interconnected with
the school's attempts to involve parents:
"Parents' attitudes about the quality of their children's
are more highly correlated with the school's practices to involve
parents (.346) than with the parents' practices of involvement
(.157). Parents who become involved at home and at school say
that the school has a positive climate. But even more so,
parents who believe that the school is actively working to
involve them say that the school is a good one." (p. 67)
