Parental Involvement in Learners’ Education: Significance, Benefits, and Barriers

Abstract

This study investigates the extent of parental involvement in the educational process within Christian schools in the Philippines. Employing a descriptive survey design, data was gathered from 80 participating parents. The results indicate that parents are actively engaged in their child's education, participating, on average, once a week. Notably, a substantial level of parental involvement was identified, perceived as advantageous for the learners, notwithstanding the challenges faced by parents. The findings underscore the importance of parental contribution in fostering a positive educational environment in Christian schools in the Philippines.
