The title of this master dissertation is "Bilingual parents' involvement in their child's learning process in order to improve bilingual pupils' academic results, and what factors that can encourage and / or discourage?
The topic is interesting, partly because research shows that parental involvement is crucial to their child's academic success in school and partly because social studies show that bilingual children from non-western cultures do worse academically than children of Danish parentage.
The objective of the assignment is to document the parents' importance and highlight what promotes and what hinders parents in becoming involved in their child's learning, so they thus can achieve better results.
Through the involvement of my own data from three earlier projects involving bilingual parents and other similar studies and the inclusion of relevant theories focus will be on the key factors that both hinder and promote: the balance of power between bilingual parents and the school, cultural and linguistic differences.
The conclusion of this master dissertation is that there is a need for both a more targeted approach to cooperation between parents and school and a need to work with both teachers and bilingual parents' attitudes. Teachers need training in communication and intercultural understanding, while parents need empowerment in terms of "school" language and intercultural understanding. In addition, there is a need for clarity in the law regarding the purpose of home-school collaboration.
