Parent Involvement in Education Plays An Important Role To Student Success
Being an educator and a parent I believe that parent's involvement in education, plays an important role in child development or success.
A recent review of the research literature by Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory found that,
"clearly, parent involvement is effective in fostering achievement and affective gains at all levels, and schools are encouraged to engage and maintain this involvement throughout the elementary, middle school and secondary years".
Parents need to be involved throughout the school year reading to their children, helping with assignments, participating in parent events at the school and establishing a working relationship with teachers."
