Why should parents get involved? Because involvement can make a dramatic difference for their children.Parent involvement is a powerful tool!

Researchers have been studying the effects parent attitudes and actions have on their children’s academic success for more than thirty years. The results have been consistent. Anne Henderson and Nancy Berla summed it up in their book, A New Generation of Evidence: The Family Is Critical to Student Achievement. Here are the facts…

Major Benefits

Research shows that when parents are involved in their children’s education, the children are more likely to:

  • earn better grades
  • score higher on tests
  • pass their classes
  • attend school regularly
  • have better social skills
  • show improved behavior
  • be more positive in their attitude toward school
  • complete homework assignments
  • graduate and continue their education

More Is Better

Parents can serve many different roles in the educational process: home teachers, advocates for their children, volunteers, fundraisers, boosters. They can even serve in decision-making and oversight roles for the school. The more parents participate in a sustained way at each of these levels, the better for student achievement.

Start Early

When parents get involved early in their children’s education, the results are more pronounced and long-lasting.

A Final Note

Why should school administrators encourage involvement? Because it can make a significant difference, both in school atmosphere and in the success rate of students—especially when parents are included as partners in the educational process.
