The purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of socioeconomic status and ethnicity on parental involvement on community schools in Rotterdam. Understanding parental involvement is useful for boosting the contribution of parents to the educational and intellectual development of children. The influence of socioeconomic status and ethnicity on parental involvement was analyzed by a multiple regression. The socioeconomic status was determined by using ISEI-scores and ethnicity is divided into three categories. Parental involvement is measured based on 43 items. 106 parents from nine different schools were being surveyed. This study has shown that socioeconomic status has a positive influence on parental involvement on community schools in Rotterdam. Between ethnicity and parental involvement no relevant relation was found.
