Importance of Parents

Get involved in your child's education TODAY

by Amy Rapp

According to the US Department of Education, research has repeatedly indicated that families are the primary influence on their child(ren's) achievement in school and throughout life.

When schools, families, and community groups band together to support learning; children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and enjoy school more.  Family involvement is, therefore, critical to student achievement.  Studies have found that students with involved parents regardless of their income or background are more likely to earn high grades and test scores, enroll in higher-level programs, attend school regularly, graduate, and attend post-secondary institutions.
