The lived experience of parents who are involved in their children’s schools

Presentation Abstract

The benefits of parental involvement for children’s educational development are widely acknowledged. This hermeneutic phenomenological investigation into the lived-experience of parents who are involved in their children’s school sought to identify essences of this experience in order to illuminate policy and practice. The essences revealed may assist education professionals in working with parents and encouraging parents to become more involved in their children’s education. This presentation explores how the methodology chosen is particularly useful in investigating human experience and discusses the results of this particular research and its implications for educators.
