Parent Involvement. Remarks.
Jacobs, James N.
Research in the Cincinnati public schools indicates that parent involvement in schools can have a major positive impact on education. Specifically, studies have shown that (1) parent involvement can help improve academic achievement and behavior and increase student attendance, (2) parents want to be involved in school, (3) schools need to be flexible in defining parent participation, (4) schools need to take the initiative in establishing communication and participation, (5) involvement needs to be extended into the community, and (6) nonparents should also be involved.
