The importance of parental involvement in the education of all children is essential in schools. The schools that promote parental involvement prepare students for excellence in their education. Parental involvement, gives students opportunities and advantages by reinforcing and fortifying their learning. Different perspectives and viewpoints were examined, focusing on bilingual students and some Spanish speaking parents in a school in south Texas.
By finding what is causing low parental involvement and by listening to strategies used by educators that help increase parental involvement, this research provides answers on how to help parents get involved in their children’s education. Empowering parents and supporting them as initial teachers to their children benefits students. Finally, the purpose of this qualitative study is to identify possible causes of low Hispanic parental involvement in kindergarten bilingual classrooms. This study looked for information about the challenges that prevent parents from getting involved in their children’s education.
