ABSTRACT Community participation in schools is necessary for quality of education because parents and the community can play a positive role in the improvement of quality of teaching. For this purpose, the Government of Pakistan and henceforth of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa ordered to form bodies such as Parents Teachers Councils (PTCs) in public sector schools for strengthening community participation in schools circa 1993. Chairmen who were elected by the parents of students headed these bodies. These Chairmen were responsible to keep a contact with the school and involve parents and communities there in. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of those Chairmen and their PTCs as to what extent they were participating and collaborating with public sector schools. Data were gathered through a questionnaire and analyzed by using Chi-square technique. It was found that in some cases Chairpersons were actively participating for improvement of schools, while in some other cases they were not successful in doing so. It is suggested that these Chairpersons should be encouraged in connecting schools and communities through public recognition and media.

The present study aims to analyze the Parental Acceptance – Rejection and personality Organization among Status Offenders and Home Children. This is one of the burning issues of the present time in our society. It has been found that parents, more or less, are involved in the delinquent behavior of their children because of their neglected and unskilled behavior (Bartol. C, Bartol, A.M, 1986). Such children are more vulnerable towards status offenders or runaways, who have disturbed family environment. The present study was comprised of 64 participants (N═ 64), out of which status offender participants were (N═ 32, males N ═ 30, females N ═ 02), and home children participants were (N═ 32, males N ═ 30, females N ═ 02). The mean age of participants of both groups of children was 13 and 12.78 years respectively. Two sampling techniques were used; purposive sampling technique for status offenders and simple random technique was used to select the sample of home children participants. PAQ and PARQ (Ronald Rohner, 1975) were administered on participants. The findings of the study have been analyzed statistically, revealed that status offenders have perceived more parental neglect then home children. Analysis further revealed negative correlation among the personality organization of status offenders and home children, especially all the scales of aggression and emotional stability on these subscales offenders scored high.
