Olympian Parents Answer the Question of How Parents Contribute towards Their Child's Academic Productivity
Campbell, James Reed
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (New Orleans, LA, Apr 8-12, 2011)
How do parents contribute toward their child's academic productivity? This article analyzes studies conducted over the last 30 years on this topic. During these three decades a number of theories and theoretical frameworks have been developed to answer this fundamental question. There have been nine national studies published and six reviews of the literature about parent involvement. What has proven effective in terms of children's achievement? The results of the national studies and the reviews show that home-based frameworks consistently show positive results whereas school-based frameworks show mostly non significant or inconsistent results. The article concludes that more research is needed with home-based paradigms and challenges the educational community to find ways to communicate the information derived to parents.
