How does increased parental involvement affects a child’s education?

k5253290

Studies consistently show that parental involvement is one of the most critical factors in student achievement. It’s not surprising. Students, like all of us, function best when others are interested in them and in their well-being.  That’s why students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • achieve higher grades and test scores as well as to enroll in higher-level programs
  • be promoted and pass their classes
  • attend school regularly
  • have better social skills and adapt well to school
  • graduate and go on to postsecondary education

If a parent is not available another adult (friend, relative, etc.) can also provide similar guidance and stimulation.
