More than fifty major research studies of the role of parents in education has shown that:

  • Parents' involvement increases their children's achievement.
  • Parents' involvement continues to be important even when students are in high school.
  • It isn't enough for parents just to be active in their children's education at home-they must participate at all levels in the schools if the schools are to be of high quality.
  • Parents don't have to be well educated to help their children improve academically.
  • Minority and low-income children gain most from having their parents take an active part in their schooling

You don't have to invest a great deal of time. Half an hour a day reading and talking to your child will make a difference. A few minutes each evening skimming and discussing homework and the exams and other work he/she brings home will make a difference.A brief conversation now and then showing your child that his/her education is important to you will make a difference. An hour or so a year talking to you child's teacher will make a difference. A couple of hours a week or even once a month volunteering in your child's school will make a difference,and so will attending PTA meetings and supporting PTA efforts. In fact,one study found that simply having an active PTA in your school will increase student achievement.
