Abstract: Several researchers have suggested that parent efficacy has greater influence on parent involvement than status variables. This study examined the relationship between parent involvement and parent efficacy among 377 parents in four high schools of one school district in British Columbia. Through a mail survey parents reported their involvement in their adolescent's learning and their self-efficacy for helping their children in school. The findings reveal a small but significant relationship between parent efficacy and parent involvement. The results demonstrated that parent involvement at home is greater than parent involvement at school. Multiple regression analyses demonstrated that parent efficacy explained more of the variation in parent involvement than the status variables; however, much of the variability associated with parent involvement is due to factors other than those specified in the model.
