dc.description.abstractThe Problem addressed in this Research is the role fulfilled by management councils in school management on behalf of the parents. Through a survey of the literature the historical background, and the judicial and educational basis of parental say in education is investigated. Parental representation by management councils and non-statutary bodies such as the TAO (Transvaalse Afrikaanse Ouervereniging) and TEMPA (Transvaal English Medium Parent Association), is evaluated; co-operation between management councils and non-statutary bodies is discussed and brief attention is given to parents' evenings as an informal manner of parental say in education. From the above-mentioned survey it becomes apparent that both parents and schools have an educational duty; that parents have to be involved in the school; that parents have to be represented in the school officially by the management council. The importance, regarding their management assignments and the degree of execution of their management tasks; their knowledge, regarding their statutary given assignments; the necessity of training of management council members; the methods that may be used to improve parental involvement in education and the co-operation between management councils and non-statutary parental organizations is empirically investigated. From the empirical investigation it seems apparent that management councils regard their duties as important and that they successfully execute these duties; that members of management councils possessed a satisfactory amount of knowledge regarding the execution of their statutary delineated duties, but that training is necessary; that parental involvement may be improved in a number of ways; and that co-operation between management councils and the parents' organizations is satisfactory. Recommendations forwarded through this investigation are that management councils should be involved in school management to a greater degree; receive training to improve the execution of their management tasks; be made more aware of their assignments regarding personnel, pupil and curriculum management; strive to attain a greater degree of parental involvement and to facilitate greater co-operation between themselves and the parents' organizations.en_US
