INFORMATION : page. 21~41 / 2012 Vol.6 No.1


The purpose of this study was to investigate parental perceptions on parent involvement in Korea. Twohundred- thirty-two parents participated in this study by completing a questionnaire developed by the researcher. Majority of parents perceived that parent involvement is significant and necessary although they are not able to participate in all events of parent involvement due to reasons such as time conflict and be baby sitters. In addition, parents wanted for teachers to frequently inform their child’s progress, to contact them through various channels, and to respect their opinions in education for their child. Strategies to compromise the reasons hindering parental participation in parent involvement as well as suggestions to meet parental demands were discussed. Suggestions for further studies were also proposed.
