Doctor of Education (Ed.D)
Date of Award
Given the requirement of parental involvement in the school-district process for identifying and placing students into special education, it was useful to evaluate how parents perceived parental-involvement strategies designed to support education and improve student achievement that could reduce the disproportionate numbers of students in special education (Crane, Winsler, & Sands, 2013; Fugate, Clarizio, & Phillips, 1993; Moreno & Gaytán, 2013). Epstein (2007) defined the conceptual framework of parental involvement as any one of the following six activities: the school contacting parents, parental involvement at home, parental involvement at school, parent role construction, parent efficacy (i.e., how parents feel they are making a difference with their child), and connections with other parents.
