Document Number: 3089Efforts by Public K-8 Schools to Involve Parents in Children’s Education: Do Schools and Parents Agree? - This report answers two major questions: Do children's parents acknowledge the efforts that schools reportedly are making, and do schools report the same level of parent participation in school programs as parents do? This report studies the level of agreement between parents' and schools' views of how schools involve parents in their children's education and how parents respond to the opportunities for involvement that schools provide. The findings can assist policymakers, educators, researchers and school staff in their future efforts to evaluate parents' involvement in their children's education.
