Having been encouraged by research findings in the West that effective hone-school relationships can help contribute to the enhancement of school effectiveness (e.g., Bastiani, 1993; Deslandes & Bertrand, 2005; Epstein. 2001; Hornby, 1995; Munn, 1993), the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has initiated since 1994 a series of proposals regarding parental involvement in school. Parents, then, gradually recognize their significant role in education (Ng, 2001b, 2003; Pang, 2004). The Education Commission (2000) writes, “Parents and the community attach great importance to the education for out young people” (p.3). In the annual report of the government policy, the secretary of education and manpower specifies that home-school cooperation features in the present movement of school-based management (Law, 2001).
