From the Paper:"In the 1960s, studies in pedagogical theory began to focus more closely on the impact that parental involvement had upon student academic performance. The data began to indicate that parents who expressed an interest not only in a child's report cards but also in homework, meetings with teachers, and community-wide improvement of the schools performed better overall than students who had parents that did not express the same high level of emotional or resource (e.g.: time) investment. The correlation between parental involvement and student academic achievement was perplexing to many researchers; pedagogical theory tended to focus on how the student was performing as a result of personal attributes (e.g.: intelligence or natural aptitude) or in response to teaching strategies.
