The Studies have indicated consistent findings that parental involvement has a significant factor that predicted student achievement.While there have been a lot of researches conducted on parental involvement, in Indonesian context however, the studies on this notion is still lacking. This paper therefore, examines the role of parental involvement in two public schools in Makassar utilizing Epstein's parental involvement framework. We conducted a focus group discussion (FGD) over school principals, teachers, and parents for both SMP Berjaya and MTSSukses. We also conducted observations towards parental involvement activities in both schools. We found that the parental involvement in Makassar is still low. Parental involvement in the school was so limited to the parents' contribution on school financial issue.
