Students do better in school when their parents are engaged.
Research from national experts and insights from practitioners confirm the powerful effect of family engagement on children’s learning. Simply put, when parents are truly engaged, children learn more.
Dr. Joyce Epstein and her colleagues find that the best predictor of whether parents are engaged is what schools and teachers do to encourage and support that involvement. (Dauber and Epstein, 1993)
