  2. Statement of the Problem Parents of elementary schools (whether public, private, or charter, etc) are not always involved with the school system. Teachers are looking for different ways to get parents involved with the schools, classrooms, and at home. Parents are not coming to parent teacher conferences, responding to letters, volunteering, or helping out at home with their children for various reasons. Some reasons may be: language barrier, lack of cultural understanding, and so on. Parents and teachers need to find a way of communicating, working together, and improving ways of being involved schools and at home.

  3. Communication with parents • Finding ways through cultures(Joshi, Arti Eberly, Jody Konzal Jean. “Dialogue across Cultures: a Teachers’ Perceptions about Communication with Diverse Families.” Understanding Family Diversity.

  8. Theorists/Practitioners • Epstein’s theory plays an important role in education. Griffin, Dana and Steen, Sam. “School-Family-Community Partnerships: Applying Epstein’s Theory of the Six Types of Involvement to School Counselor Practice". American School Counseling Association. April 2010 • Epstein discusses six types of involvements: • parenting • communicating • volunteering • learning at home, • decision making and • collaborating Griffin, Dana and Steen, Sam. “School-Family-Community Partnerships: Applying Epstein’s Theory of the Six Types of Involvement to School Counselor Practice". American School Counseling Association. April 2010

  9. Hypothesis Over a few week study in a Public School X, a teacher will look at ways parents are involved and not involved in his/her classroom. We will look into diversities of how parents view involvement in the classroom and at home. The teacher would send out a survey to the homes, call and invite parents to the classroom to volunteer, or invite parents to volunteer on a field trip.
