Community support of the school is related to the extent parents perceive that school programs are contributing to the aspirations they have for their children. Generally these aspirations have to do with developing a variety of skills and competencies. However, the parents' comprehension of the relationship between the school program and the success of their children is often generalized, if not elusive. To the extent it is elusive and vague, public trust and support may be jeopardized.
