Effective schools will communicate their expectations to the over-zealous parent (regarding less parental involvement) and educate them with respect to the student development process. Sergiovanni maintains that effective schools foster an environment of creative problem solving and this is the approach one must take in terms of addressing the problem of effective parental involvement.ReferencesBloom, Benjamin s. 1954.
