Abstract EDUCATORS UNDERSTAND that strong home-school partnership benefits all key stakeholders in the education of the child. This article first discusses challenges to partnership with parents in general, and then highlights challenges specific to the mathematics curriculum area. Second, mathematics intervention is reviewed. Third, the current study is described and parents' perceptions of their knowledge and ability to support the school's reading and mathematics programs are reported. Fourth, parental involvement in the action-research phase of the study, a mathematics intervention program, is described. Finally, results of the intervention are presented and the means whereby parental involvement was gained is made explicit.
