Abstract:
This study looked at parent involvement from the teachers' point of view. A survey of 73 teachers in one geographical area of a small city was undertaken to find out if teachers attempt to recruit parents as volunteers, how they recruit them, and the tasks that parent volunteers do. A comparison was made between primary grade teachers and intermediate grade teachers as well as between bilingual and non-bilingual teachers. The results indicate that most of the teachers involved in the study do attempt to recruit parent volunteers, they tend to use similar techniques, and they involve parents in a variety of tasks. A few differences were found between bilingual and non-bilingual teachers but the greatest surprise was that there were so few differences found between primary and intermediate level teachers.
