ABSTRACT  

This descriptive study explored parental involvement in the education of their children who are blind at Asuogya D/A Junior High School in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. Thirty-five participants made up of fifteen parents and twenty teachers responded to the interview items and the questionnaire.  The study employed convenient and purposive sampling techniques to sample the parents and teachers for the study. Data was analyzed using SPSS to obtain simple frequencies and percentages for the questionnaire data and thematic analysis for the interview data. Results of the study showed that some parents involve themselves in the education of their wards in the school but not at an appreciate level. Again, it was revealed that, the head teacher and teachers in the school were not cooperative to parents who wish to involve themselves in the education of their wards. It was recommended that the District Director of Education should periodically organize in-service training to head teachers and in teachers in the district on how to cooperate with parents and promoted welcoming environment to enhance parental participation.
