SOUZA, Vera Lucia Trevisan de; ANDRADA, Paula Costa; PISSOLATTI, Lúcia Maria  and  VENANCIO, Magda Machado Ribeiro. The senses of the school for parents. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2013, n.36, pp. 55-66. ISSN 1414-6975.

The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a survey that investigated the sense that parents assign to their children's school. We take Historical-Cultural Psychology as theoretical and methodological basis particularly on the concepts of Vygotsky's human development. From the analysis of observations carried out at school and of the responses of questionnaires of parents or guardians, we could realize that, from the perspective of parents, the motivational aspects to their children attending school are not in pedagogical activities or educational objectives and they are associated with interests related to interaction with colleagues and possibilities for participation in sports activities. These results show the challenge to be faced by the school psychologist in promoting mediation to encourage interactions that mobilize students for learning, what necessarily passes through teacher education.

Keywords : Historical-cultural psychology; senses; parents of students.
