There is a significant amount of research that shows the positive impact of parental involvement on
a child’s education. According to a study by the National Parent Teacher Association, students with
involved parents are more likely to have higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates.
As educators, we strongly believe that parental involvement is crucial to a child’s academic success.
Therefore, we encourage parents to actively participate in their child’s education. Here are some
ways you can get involved:
- Attend parent-teacher meetings: Attend all parent-teacher meetings to discuss your child’s
progress and areas that need improvement.
- Communicate with teachers: Regularly communicate with your child’s teachers to discuss any
concerns or questions you may have.
- Review homework and assignments: Take time each day to review your child’s homework and
assignments to ensure they are staying on track and understanding the material.
- Encourage reading: Encourage your child to read daily, and read together, discussing the story
- Attend school events: Attend as many school events as possible, such as plays, concerts, and
sporting events, to show your support for your child and their school.
- Volunteer at school: Volunteer at school when possible, whether it’s helping in the classroom or
organizing school events.
- Help with homework: If your child is struggling with homework, offer your help and support.
In summary, getting involved in your child’s education is important for their academic success,
personal growth, and overall well-being. By staying informed and involved, parents can help their
child reach their full potential and achieve their goals.
