Parent
It is the parent's responsibility to encourage their child to do better and constantly "check up" on their school work.

Sometimes rely too much on the teacher and put pressure on the teacher instead of being involved.

They automatically think that the "Teacher Knows Best"
Teacher
It is the teacher's responsibility to encourage parent involvement and convey the definition and share this leadership with parents
Government
It is the governments responsibility to promote and support this involvement among the public and school personnel.

"No Child Left Behind"
goal is to help parents become involved
