The ILOPS research explores the different ways in which parents participate in school, including their interaction with teachers and within communities. Research teams also examined how parents support children’s learning at home. In turn, the teams set out to
understand more about teachers’ and pupils’ views on parental involvement in school
and to what extent recruitment and training policies actually encourage or support parents in actively improving the quality of education. Researchers also explored how these efforts directly or indirectly influence learning outcomes.
