Forestalling preschool expulsion: A mixed-method exploration of the potential protective role of teachers' perceptions of parents

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Zulauf, Courtney A.; Zinsser, Katherine M.;
Date Issued: December, 2019
Description: Preschoolers are being expelled at an alarming rate and little is known about protective factors. One factor may be the relationship between parents and teachers. Using surveys and interviews, the present study explores teachers' perceptions of parents and center support as they relate to teachers' requests to have a child removed from their classroom, an action related to expulsion. Teachers who have more negative perceptions of parents and perceive less center support working with parents were more likely to have requested a removal of a child in the past year. Qualitative comparisons yield differential themes around attribution of child behavior to parents and styles of engagement with parents between teachers who have requested a removal and those who have not.
