Abstract

This study used data from nine teachers, 51 parents, 18 students and three key actors from three urban elementary schools in southwestern Ontario. It examined the connections between school programmes of parent involvement, teachers' attitudes and the practices that teachers use to involve parents of their own students as well as parents' attitudes and parents' levels of involvement with their own children at home and in the school setting. Current levels of school-family partnerships were assessed according to the Epstein model (1986) which included parenting, communicating, volunteering, learning at home, decision making and collaborating with the community.
