Why is school trust important

Why is school trust important?

  • Research has explored teacher trust in parents and students (Goddard, Tschannen-Moran, & Hoy, 2001).

  • Work has examined how parental trust in school influences communication with teachers/school.

  • Less work has explored the role of parents’ past experiences.

  • Racial trust as a factor for parents of Black youth predominately white schools.


Parental school trust

Parental School Trust

  • General School Trust- belief that school personnel uphold the best interest of the child.

  • Racial School Trust- belief that school personnel treat the child in a racially equitable way.


Parent past experiences

Parent Past Experiences

  • Past Experiences with School-parent’s positive school experiences growing up.

  • Past Experiences with Racial Discrimination- frequency of parent reported racial discrimination.


Additional factors

Additional Factors

  • Racial Centrality- viewing race as a core part of one’s self-concept.

  • Public Regard- feeling that others view African Americans positively or negatively.


Research questions

Research Questions

  • Are previous discrimination and school experiences related to school trust (general & racial)?

    • Hyp1: Higher levels of racial discrimination will predict lower levels of school trust.

    • Hyp2: positive past school experiences will be related to higher levels of school trust

  • Are child and parent characteristics (gender and parent racial identity) related to school trust?


Method

Method

Sample

  • 180 African American caregiver-child dyads from a small Midwestern city.

  • Participants consisted of students in grades 7-11 who self-identified as African American and their primary caregiver.

  • 157 mothers (81%), 19 fathers (9.8%), and caregiver age range was 30 to 74 (M=43).

  • 104 female teens (58%) and teen ages ranged from 12 to 17 (M=14).


Past experience measures

Past Experience Measures

  • Caregiver Past School Experiences (3 items)

    • Sample item: “School was exciting for me.”

  • Racial Discrimination Experiences (17 items)

    - Sample item: “Over your lifetime, how often have you been treated disrespectfully because of your race?”


School trust measures

School Trust Measures

  • General School Trust (3 items)

    • “I would feel comfortable talking with the child’s teachers about his/her performance in school.”

    • “In general, I trust the child’s school.”

  • Racial School Trust (4 items)

    • “I believe that the child’s teachers are sensitive to the cultural needs of Black children.”

    • “I see the child’s school as a supportive place for Black children.”

Summary of results

Summary of Results

  • Both past school experiences and racial discrimination predicted general trust.

  • Past school experiences predicted racial trust.

  • Perhaps racial identity moderates discrimination and racial trust.


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Past experiences play an important role on parental school trust

  • Future studies should further explore parent past experiences

  • Future studies can also explore public regard as a moderator for school racial trust
