Ekaterine Pipia, Ketevan BATSANKALASHVILI

Abstract


The presented paper examines how parental involvement in education can facilitate school development and improvement in
Georgia. The study, which was conducted in the private school “Logos”, Tbilisi, Georgia, sought to find out the types and categories
of
parental
involvement,
parent’s
assessment
of
school
and
family
responsibilities
in
the
process
of
education,
and
finally,
barriers
that impede successful school-parent cooperation. The
aim of the research was to identify whether the interviewed parents

felt
involved
in
their
children’s
education
and
school
life
as
well
as
find
out
what
activities
they
would
be
willing
to
get
involved
in.

The
research also studied the strategies that would help parents to be better involved and the barriers that prevented them from

engaging
in
school
life.
Based
on
the
findings
of
the
research,
we
were
able
to
draw
conclusions
and
recommendations
that
are

useful for school administrators in order to turn Georgian schools into open-type, democratic institutions that are ready to achieve
better academic results for the future generations.
