Research on parents’ involvement in the education of their children has often focused on majority-group parents’ engagement. The voices of immigrant parents of English Language Learners (ELLs) have been represented to a lesser degree. This study explored the thoughts and opinions of immigrant parents from the South Asian, Punjabi-speaking community in an urban area in southern British Columbia (BC), Canada. The research examines issues of involvement and how they are perceived by these parents. More specifically, I explore the views of five parents and their feelings toward involvement in their children’s education. In particular, data were collected through face-to-face, informal discussions and interviews with five immigrant parents. As a result of this research, educators and administrators can access these South Asian, Punjabi-speaking parents’ views and potentially gather insight to better involve immigrant parents them in the educational processes of their children.
