European survey on parents: have your say!

What is your view on parental engagement? How does your school engage with parents? Is it successful?

There is a strong link between a positive home learning environment and students’ performance at school, according to research. Engaging parents and caregivers as learning partners in a whole-school strategy can support children’s learning, behaviour and social and emotional development. However, parents from disadvantaged backgrounds may find it difficult to help their children, while teachers might find it challenging to involve parents, due to barriers such as different home language or mistrust by parents who question the methodologies and curricula.

Take this short survey to share your opinion on the subject: it is open until 28 July and available in 23 languages. The results will be published on the School Education Gateway, Europe’s online platform for school education.
