According to the paper, parent involvement has not always been successfully accomplished in the school system. The writer utilizes the sources to gain greater understanding of what parent involvement is, what it can accomplish and how it can be implemented successfully. The paper then gives models of of ways in which parents can successful invest time in the educational systems of their children.

From the Paper:

"Lazar and Slostad (1999) believe that teachers are actually trained into perceiving parents as obstacles, rather than as supporters or partners. They contend that historical patterns lead to a educational climate that negatively impacts teacher-parent relationships. Much of this developed as teachers increasingly became seen as the "professionals" in dealing with children, while parents were seen as ignorant, uneducated, and likely to be part of the problem, rather than part of the solution. They name several factors, including (a) socio-historical factors, (b) the failure of teacher education, (c) school culture systems that divide home and school, and (d) issues for teachers of older children."
