3. Résumé

«Across the provinces, Canada has promoted family engagement in schools in a number of governmental acts and programs […]. Dubeau (2002) conducted a review of over 80 relevant articles written by Canadian researchers. The purpose of this review was to provide an overview of the state of research on fathers in Canada for the national forum entitled Father Involvement in Canada: The Creation of a Community-Research Partnership held in Toronto in March, 2002. […] Research topics were grouped into four categories […] Those reported in this chapter fall into the last category–differences between maternal and paternal behavior. […] The measures adopted for these studies adhere to a family perspective. These family-centered studies rest upon the belief that the fathers’ role is equal or similar to that of the mother. Thus, the research focused on both parents; however, for the purpose of the topic of this book, the paternal findings will be highlighted.» (p. 18-19) L’auteure rapporte également les résultats d’autres études en ce qui a trait à l’implication des pères.
