Вовлеченность детей в дополнительное образование: контроль и ценность образования со стороны родителей

Бочавер А. А., Вербилович О. Е., Павленко К. В., Поливанова К. Н., Сивак Е. В.

The paper explores parental attitudes towards additional education basing on
the materials of 20 interviews with parents of schoolchildren. We analyse the
ideas about the value and objectives of additional education among parents in
the context of three types of children’s involvement in additional education —
high, flickering and low. We then discuss parental practices of control over
children's education and of maintaining children's motivation and compare
their views on the problems solved by different areas of activities (foreign
languages, sports and dance, visual arts, revising the curriculum with the help
of tutors, computer knowledge). Also, we focus on the strategies of "maximal"
and "optimal" filling of out-of-school educational space that is common among
parents of children with high involvement in additional education. The paper
concludes with reflections on the significance of the family in the organization
of the child’s educational space since the parents and other members of the
family are the primary initiators, organizers, actors responsible for the child’s
educational space.
