From the Paper:

"The purpose for writing this paper was to scrutinize recent research on the significance of parental involvement in education among low income minority students. Another purpose was to see whether or not minority parents' participation in schools would enhance student test scores and other school related activities. Parents involved in workshops designed to teach homework tips for reading and math had students with greater academic achievement. In addition, it was important to find out if parental involvement negated language differences, cultural differences, and other caste barriers of minority students. In order to do this the researcher needed to study several individuals in a particular and chosen school district including parents, students, and teachers.
Reviewing the literature for this issue was also important because the information contained in the literature review provided a great deal of insight into what had been done in the past. This past information is vital for a complete understanding of what has been going on in the academic world when it comes to whether the involvement of the parents has anything to do with the way that children perform on tests and the kinds of grades that these children receive. Not all school districts may find that having parental involvement makes any kind of significant difference in how well their children perform, but since it seems logical that this would be the case, further studies are clearly needed to examine this issue more closely."
