Case Study of an Educational Change Model

Case Study of an Educational Change Model:  Parent Engagement Initiative

A growing number of urban school stakeholders have sought to change failing schools by implementing initiatives to increase parent involvement.  Stakeholders have purposed changing the school’s culture; the quality of relationships between educators, parents, and students; and students’ educational outcomes by effecting systemic change within the school and the surrounding community.  The implementation of successful systemic initiatives has resulted in an increase in the quantity and quality of the various forms of parent involvement identified by Epstein (1995), such as parent volunteers in the school, and parents helping their children with homework. Implementing parent involvement initiatives has succeeded in improving student academic achievement and transforming the culture of schools (Lewis, 1997; Murnane & Levy, 1996).  The purpose of conducting this case study was to describe the change implementation process of an urban school district and to analyze a parent engagement initiative.
