Parents as Partners in Education: Successful Participation in Primary Schools
Study | December 2014
A constructive partnership between schools and parents plays an important role in the academic performance and educational success of pupils. As a result, primary schools already offer many forms of parent participation. As the study conducted by the Expert Council's Research Unit shows, all-day schools are more successful overall at involving parents with a migration background and socially disadvantaged families than half-day schools. However, many primary schools still do not offer parents educational opportunities. The recommendations outlined in the study identify the prerequisites for successful parent participation.
