This book addresses central questions in regards to parental involvement across European educational systems; exploring the commonalities and differences across European countries and the extent to which current policy and practice pertains to parental involvement inclusive of diversity.

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach that draws from the fields of education, sociology, and psychology, it presents a description of the policy context and empirical research on critical perspectives relating to parental involvement. Comprising a rich varied cross-section of national experiences from eleven European countries and the contexts surrounding them, case studies provide insights into parental involvement across Europe and identify challenges in the field.

This volume’s in-depth approach and comprehensive interrogation of parental involvement across European education systems make it an ideal resource for academics, researchers and post-graduate students in the field of education policy and comparative education, as well as teacher educators and policy makers.
