Parent Involvement Research:
When families work with schools to support learning, children tend to succeed in school and in life. It doesn’t matter how much money the parents make, if they can:
- Offer a home that supports learning;
- share high, yet realistic, plans and expectations for their children's learning and careers; and
- be involved in their children's education at school and in the community.”
All families can have a positive influence on their children’s learning.
