Research has shown that parents who are involved in their children's academic life through all levels of education are more likely to participate in community enrichment, and students with actively engaged parents are more likely to succeed in the world of academia and perform better academically. This paper explores the role that parental involvement plays in student achievement and success within the classroom and without.

From the Paper:

"The more parents become involved with their children's academic life and schools the more likely schools will improve, or at least that is valid based on evidence uncovered by Machen, Notar & Wilson (2005). In this groundbreaking study the researchers show that parental involvement is a key component in transforming public schools and encouraging them to conform to higher standards (p. 13). The researchers also notes that engaging parents "in an active role in the school curriculum can open alternative opportunities for children to succeed in academics" (Machen, Notar & Wilson, 13).
"Many researchers have identified a need to engage families and even community members as partners in the academic process (Machen, Notar & Wilson, 2005). A schools success is often linked to community success, and parents can play an important role in improving school sand improving student achievement (Machen, Notar & Wilson, 2005)."
