|dc.description.abstract||The 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
