Bonus Question: 5000 pts. Parental/Family Involvement Answer What is the key to student success? According to the National Education Association (NEA), parents must be actively involved in order to ensure a child’s success in school. Study after study has indicated that a child’s educational experience is enhanced when a parental figure is involved.
Here are a few of the research findings into parental involvement: When parents are involved in their child’s education at home, children do better in school. Children go farther in school when their parents are involved in school. A home environment that supports learning is more important to student success than income, education level or cultural background. The sooner the parental involvement starts, the more powerful the effects. Some of the results of parental involvement include student achievement, reduced absenteeism and improved behavior.
What can parents do to get involved? Read to or with your children. Check homework every day. Stay in contact with your child’s teachers. Keep your phone number and address current with the school. Become involved in the school’s parent organization/volunteer at school. Attend parent/teacher conferences & Family Nights
