Parents are most likely to become involved when:
They understand they should be involved – Parents should be involved in four key ways: as teachers, as supporters, as advocates and as decision-makers
They feel capable of making a contribution – Regardless of income, education level, or cultural background, all families can and do, contribute to their children’s academic success.
They feel welcomed by the school and their children – The more the relationship between school and family approaches a partnership, the higher the student achievement.
