A Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of Different Types of Parental Involvement Programs for Urban Students
Jeynes, William
Urban Education, v47 n4 p706-742 Jul 2012
This meta-analysis of 51 studies examines the relationship between various kinds of parental involvement programs and the academic achievement of pre-kindergarten-12th-grade school children. Analyses determined the effect sizes for various parental involvement programs overall and subcategories of involvement. Results indicate a significant relationship between parental involvement programs overall and academic achievement, both for younger (preelementary and elementary school) and older (secondary school) students as well as for four types of parental involvement programs. Parental involvement programs, as a whole, were associated with higher academic achievement by 0.3 of a standard deviation unit. The significance of these results is discussed. (Contains 6 tables.)
