What Research Says:

  • Regardless of the economic, ethnic, or cultural background, family/parent involvement in a child’s education is a major factor in determining the child’s success in school.

Source: PTA Policy Issue Reference Cards, Revised February 2009

—Family involvement contributes to other positive outcomes, such as better school attendance, improved homework completion rates, decreased violence and substance abuse, and higher graduation rates.

Source: PTA Policy Issue Reference Cards, Revised February 2009

—Parents are crucial in guiding their children through a college preparatory curriculum, and middle school students generally cite their parents as their top resource for academic planning and support.

This week in the Tribune

Not every parent can help with the calculus homework – or even algebra. But every parent can turn off the television, secure the XBox, and ask a child what happened in school today or what is due for school tomorrow. Every parent can make sure a child finishes his or her homework, gets enough sleep, and arrives at school on time.

Those small acts of daily rigor send a message to children: School counts, Self-discipline counts, and Reliability counts.
