The role of parents in the education of their children
In many Western, democratic countries a new look is being taken at the role of parents in the education of their children. Parents are coming to be viewed less as passive spectators, who can pay their taxes, but who have to leave education to the decision makers and the professionals. Nourished by Friedman’s economic theories, the theme of parental choice of school has become a matter of increasing interest. In the school, too, there is an increasing need to take more adequate advantage of the range of cultural-educational situations in the home and to involve parents in education in connection with the chances for the pupils’ development, their school career, and the way the teachers perform their function. the preface and the introduction of the book by Frederik Smit, Wil van Esch and Herbert Walberg.
