From the Paper:

"Further obstacles for secondary teachers include the students' increased need for autonomy for the secondary school age group, and the nature of the class structure and curriculum. Middle school and high school teachers both teach large numbers of students each class period, and they may teach over 100 different students within one day. Therefore, they are, less likely to be personally involved with the student or the family. The academic work for this age group may be beyond the parents' capability, limiting their ability to assist the student. Parents may not believe that they are able to help their children. It is concluded that further understanding of the parent's role and overcoming assumptions about parent involvement are necessary to promote collaboration between the parent and teacher (Lazar and Slostad)."
