Involvement of Roma parents in children’s education in Croatia: A comparative study

Abstract

This article compares Roma and mainstream parents’ involvement in the education of their children, based on Epstein’s six-dimensional model of parent–school partnership. The survey was conducted in Croatia on two sub-samples: 60 Roma parents and 908 mainstream parents. Results suggest that Roma parents show lower interest in participating in volunteer work and school decision making than do mainstream parents, they rate their children’s achievement and school satisfaction lower, and they have lower academic aspirations for their children.
