Chalk Talk: Why Parents Need to Be Involved in Education
According to educational research, the single most important factor that influences a child’s success in school is the level of involvement of their parents. This includes much more than asking about homework and attending the occasional parent-teacher conference. Students whose families create a home environment conducive to learning experience the highest achievement. Similarly, setting high, yet attainable goals for children encourages them to work hard and set themselves up for success in college or the workplace. Children experience many benefits as a result of these simple methods of parental involvement. Students achieve higher grades and perform better on exams. Homework is more consistently completed and turned in as well. Parental involvement also boosts students’ self-esteem and encourages them to be more disciplined when it comes to their studies. A more positive attitude about education results, thus promoting even more success in school.
