Parental Involvement in School Systems Parental involvement in school systems is a vital part to the success of many different types of people’s success. Therefore the purpose of this research paper is to investigate the importance of parental involvement in elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as the influence this has on the migrant students. Although, there are many conflicts that occur while trying to get the parents involved in the school systems. This all leads to increased academic success, and proves that it is the best way to go in most cases. “Many factors affect student performances, latest fad is no cure-all”(Weaver, Reg 2003).
The Impact of Parental Engagement on Students’ Performance Stacey Timkey (2015) conducted a study examining the impact of parent attitudes, parent involvement, and literacy achievement for pre-kindergarten students. Analysis of information gained through parent surveys and teacher interviews makes it evident that parent-teacher and student-teacher relationships are an important aspect of student achievement. Positive parent-teacher relationships not only benefit parents and teachers, but helps children as well. The author admitted that the study has upgraded her awareness and understanding of the impact of parent involvement and parental academic attitudes on an individual child’s learning and academic achievement. The author also explained
Schools should encourage parents to become actively involved in their children’s education by promoting the importance of being supportive and having high expectations on their children’s educational attainment. Government, through its policy should provide monetary support to the impoverished family to reduce poverty and increase their socioeconomic status as from the research, it is evidenced that parents with higher socioeconomic status hold higher expectation towards their children’s academic achievement which lead to academic success in schools.

Parenting approaches and techniques like support, upholding a healthy relationship, warm and fair treatment, firm treatment and restrictive control are all attributed to students who achieve academic success in school, and have healthy positive schemas about the world. A study about authoritative parenting, psychosocial maturity, and academic success among adolescents was conducted by Laurence Steinberg, Julie D. Elmen and Nina S. Mounts in 1989. The study was about the relation between 3 aspects of authoritative parenting - acceptance, psychological autonomy and behavioural control - and success in school. A sample of 120 students between the ages of 10 and 16 were examined in order to test the hypothesis that authoritative parenting facilitates, rather than merely complements success.

"(Next Generation High Schools) More steps that Obama has came up with to improve school systems are making sure that children know and understand the material that they are being taught in the classroom. If some children are struggling Obama wants to have an academic support system where students know they can go to for extra help.

The following research paper will thoroughly analyze and explain the following; parenting types, the role of parental engagement in school activities, perceived teacher responsiveness, the effects of parental involvement on children’s intrinsic motivation and self-efficacy, how parents’ educational attainment influences the families socioeconomic status, involvement in extracurricular activities, and lastly ethnic variations. The manner in which students perceive parental engagement predicts behavioral, academic, and relational outcomes. Students whose parents had higher expectations about grades and achievement attained higher overall scores and were regarded as more academically engaged by their professors. For example, they were more likely to have higher grade point averages and increased levels of classroom engagement. A plausible explanation may be that students internalize their parents’ expectations and thus experience a strong aspiration to excel in school (Chen & Gregory, 2009).
Woodside Avenue School is already a strong representation of what we value, however our ideal future would be one where our children grow academically and as people. Through conversations with our students, staff, parents, and community members about the type of school they would like Woodside to be, our vision for Woodside School is clear. We will improve student outcomes in language arts proficiency, focusing on our special education students, while still providing these students with the necessary mainstreaming that is important to building character and educating the whole child.
Such support allows for the student to succeed academically, and since thriving for and towards success in taught immigrants from a young age it becomes a part of their schema, ideology and who they are. Family are responsible for the school they choose to have their kids attend, such decision could either possibly or negatively impact a student’s academic success as their school environment and teacher also play a role who they become and whether or not they succeed.
'The most effective schools are now widely considered to be ones that encourage and support the involvement of parents and other family members in the education of their children' (Grant and Ray, 2010). To conclude, my research shows a clear link between parental involvement and children performing better in school. Children who's parents are involved in their education are showing better performance and are achieving higher grades. They also show better behaviour, more enthusiasm, ambition and higher levels of engagement. compared with children who's parent are not involved in their education.
