- Parental involvement promotes the social growth of a child. Children whose parents are involved in their education have many advantages. They have better grades, test scores, long-term academic achievement, attitudes and behavior than those with disinterested mothers and fathers (Gestwicki, 2001). Parents becoming involved in their child's schooling creates extra sources of social constraint to influence the child's behavior (McNeal, 2001).

- I believe that parental involvement is essential for the success of a child’s education. I think for a child to excel in school that their parents or guardians need to educate the child as much as the teacher.

- Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” In order for a student to truly succeed, there must be some type of involvement. Parental involvement is a certain asset that most successful students all share. In contrast, some parents sometimes blame teachers for their child’s low learning potential. This is false, since learning starts at home. A child needs to be taught morals, values and book knowledge in order to succeed in life.... [tags: Parental Involvement in Education]

- Parental Involvement Parent Involvement has been an issue in the United States since before the turn of the nineteenth century (Wallace). “Parent Involvement” and “parent participation” are nebulous terms because there is an array of parenting behaviors that this could include (Hickman). Either way you define it, parents must get involved. What many parents consider ‘being involved’ varies from family to family. No one is better placed or more qualified than parents to make a difference in their child’s academic and lifelong education (Bourquin).... [tags: Parent Involvement in Education, Teaching]

- Parental involvement in education is a vital essential for creating a cooperative environment for the student to thrive and succeed in. When a student knows that he or she is receiving support both inside and outside the school, the chances of that child becoming responsible for and active in their education are more likely. I know that there can be difficulties including parents for many reasons. Such parents may be too busy, uninterested or just feel helpless. However, as an educator, I will still have an obligation to reach out to these parents and assist them.... [tags: Parent Involvement in Education, Teaching]

The purposes included: “the education of parents for child development; the coöperation of home and school; the promotion of the kindergarten movement; the securing of legislation for neglected and dependent children; and the education of young people for parenthood,” (Butterworth, 7)....

- History of Parent Involvement Prior to the 1850’s, before public education existed, parents and families were responsible for the education of their children. During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s education in schools became wide spread. As public education grew and teachers became professionals many began to believe that professionals alone should be responsible for educating children (Stein and Thorkildsen). As years went by, families showed some concern about this new view on who should be in charge of their children’s education.... [tags: Parent Involvement in Education, Teaching]
