Abstract

Parents play an important role in the learning process of their children during COVID - 19 pandemic. The presence of the parents counts in their children’s remote learning. They become the co-teachers as they supervise the completion of the various learning activities. Homeschooling during the lockdown was manageable among students with the assistance and guidance of the parents who acted as co-teachers. The study used Creswell’s [7] quantitative approach to survey research. There were 1152 parents among 16 schools in the Philippines who responded to the study. The parent-respondents were parents of students in the grade school, junior high school, senior high school, and tertiary levels. The questionnaire was validated by school leaders and was distributed using Google Form. The data revealed that the majority of the parent-respondents were females, Roman Catholics, 40 – 49 years old, and whose children are enrolled in senior high school. The parents viewed that the online learning modality gave their children more time to learn and perform the activities. They observed that their children’s academic performance is greatly affected by distractions which could be addressed by including essential topics in the module. Further, the parents suggested that formation activities prioritized the career pathing of the students.
