[Full text]

Bogdan Mihai Radu  [1]

Abstract: In this article I explore issues of parental involvement in school activities in former communist countries of South Eastern Europe. Although parents with higher socio-economic status feel more efficacious and thus get involved more, I argue that successful mobilization by schools may result in more representative parental involvement, extending beyond mere socio-economic inequalities. I my analysis I employ multi-national survey data collected through a project entitled Advancing Educational Inclusion and Quality in South East Europe.

Keywords: Socialization, parental involvement, socio-economic inequality, mobilization
