    The main purpose of the the research, which we have done, has been to gain the information about parental involvment in activities, which are connected with their child's education and checked, which factors influence it. We also wanted to research the satisfaction of the parents about how supportive the school system is, which we researched according to what the parents wish for from the supportive school and if any parents have complained about the factors and influences for complaints according to the literature of the field. The research included parents of children from six primary schools from Ljubljana, who responded for children aged 7 to 15. The responses of the respondents and the analysis of their answers have shown that in average at least one person besides the child's parents is included in the activities connected with the child's education. The children have mostly heard praise from the respondents or the other involved in children's education. However, the least support is connected with preparation of school supplies for lessons. The reason for parental inclusion is mostly support for the child to see he/she can count on them. Parents think their children are successful in accordance with their expectations before their children entered the school system, their grades are important for them. The research showed high interest of parents in support of the school in the areas in which they already assist their children at home. They expect higher encouragement of their child's talent, critical thinking, and methods of successful learning. There have only been 20% of the respondents who have complained, mostly to the teacher. They wanted to achieve more decent response for the child. The analysis of the importance of grades for parents and also expectations about the child's successfulness at school has not showed any statistically important influence on inclusion of parents. The analysis of the data has also not given any statistically important influence on the parents' complaints – we have checked the factors in pairs, the importance of grades for parents and number of included in children's education, satisfaction of parents with their efficiency of giving support to children and average final grade, sorts of supports parents wish from school and reasons for inclusion. According to this research, our conclusion is that parental involvement is high and present in many activities related to their child's education. Parents, who participated in this research, see school and teachers as partners in their child's education and have high expectations for their support.
