Parental involvement in schools has been significantly examined within sociological research, with dominant themes in the literature highlighting the positive impact on children's academic performance, school culture, and community-school partnerships had by strong parent-school relationships (Conroy, 2012; Jeynes, 2011). In the twenty-first century, however, the nature of common family structures no longer mirrors that of earlier decades within which parental involvement research was originated (Jeynes, 2011). Consequently, a wide gap within the literature exists with respect to applicable parental involvement practices to the changing social landscape of the globalized community. Parental involvement with schools is dependent on a wide spectrum of variables, with these forces additionally not existing in a vacuum but highly dependent of one another; these factors include the issues traditionally cited in the parental involvement literature as well as new factors more pertinent to the twenty-first century family (Manz et al., 2010). This study proposed herein examines the factors which influence parental involvement in the twenty-first century using a mixed methods approach.
