The purpose of the study was to focus on parents‘ involvement in the homework, and lecturers’ involvement in homework of students. Participants consisted of parents of engineering and non-engineering students in State Polytechnics of Sriwijaya and its teaching staff. The sample consisted of 150 parents of 95% high-income status and 24 certified lecturers. The research used a qualitative approach. Data was collected via surveys answered by parents and lecturers based on Lickert scale items adapted from Reglin, Cameron, and Losike-Sedimo. The results showed that parental involvement towards students’ homework completion and partnerships between parents and lecturers were very low. Since educational gains of parental involvement are noted and confirmed the significance of parents in educational processes, it is recommended that parents who do not assist their children in homework should be sensitized to do so.
