New NESET ad hoc report on parental involvement in formal education

NESET is happy to present the first ad hoc report of 2021 “Parental involvement in formal education“, which addresses benefits and concerns related to parental involvement in learning process. The report was prepared by NESET network member Aigul Alieva.

The report provides an overview of the latest academic and policy literature on parental involvement in formal education in Europe. It examines the potential barriers to parental involvement, analyses how parental involvement may differ depending on education level and specific family, and presents emerging practices that may enable parental involvement. The author also discusses the effects the school closures in 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19 may have had on parents and their involvement in their children’s education. 

The report is concluded with some policy recommendations for EU- and national-level policy makers that suggest how parental involvement could be facilitated and improved to bring most benefits to children.
