The BBC just published the results of a survey of British parents’ attitudes toward school (see Parents ‘more involved in children’s schools’). Here’s how it begins:
Parents believe they are more involved in their children’s education than their own parents were – and that children now have more opportunities in school, suggests a survey.
The survey for the National Association of Head Teachers looked at how parents viewed their children’s schooling.
Almost three quarters believed they were more engaged with their children’s school than the previous generation.
Head teachers’ leader Russell Hobby said the results were “heartening”.
Mr Hobby said the poll of over 1,000 parents in England, Wales and Northern Ireland suggested the schools were “welcoming places”.
