It can be understood easily that access to good education is not the same for everyone. Some schools have a lot of resources and funds while others do not have enough because of zip codes. Nevertheless, there is an effective way to have quality education regardless of location, race, or financial status. Parent involvement can play a huge role in boosting students’ achievement.
Many studies done in the past 50 years have reported that the academic performance of students improves when parents take an active role in their child’s education. Not only does it improve a child’s academic achievement, but it also brings about better social skills, mental health, and behavior.
Parent involvement is not limited to parents only. Caregivers and guardians can be a huge help in providing education involvement to children. This can also be done in schools or homes. To get started, parents can have conversations with their children every day about what happened to them throughout the day or asking what they learned that day.
