Sažetak

Parental satisfaction with school influences the parents'
involvement in children's schooling, and also the message
they are sending to their children concerning their schooling
and education in general. Therefore, the aim of this article is
to explore some determinants of parental satisfaction with
school and attitudes toward the necessity of changes in
school. Data were analyzed on a sample of 3558 mothers
and 989 fathers of elementary school children from 49
elementary schools included in the project "Evaluation of
experimental implementation of Croatian national
educational standard (HNOS)" as control schools. Parents
mostly express mild satisfaction with school in general and
observe a relatively big necessity for changes. Satisfaction
with school is mostly predictable based on attitudes toward
different aspects of school, some sociodemografic
characteristics and least based on some aspects of parental investment in children's education. The general attitude
toward the necessity of changes is mostly predictable based
on expectations of upcoming changes, followed by attitudes
toward different aspects of school, different aspects of
parents' investment and least by sociodemographic
characteristics. The results indicate the need for further
investigation of reasons for parental (di)satisfaction, for their
attitude of necessity of changes. They invite for a greater
respect of parental attitudes, which could enable better
parents-school cooperation during the application of
changes.
