Abstract

This paper highlights the process of piloting the first stage of the research; an investigation into Keralite parental expectations of primary schooling. It considers the methodological issues of identifying respondents, suitable and willing to participate in the research. Through the first stage of the development of questionnaires and interviews early indications suggest that Keralite parents have a limited knowledge of Primary education and Curriculum in schools in England, have high academic expectations for their children, and wish to maximize their child's potential for entry to United Kingdom universities.
