Home Based: when the parent is in education participating at home
School Based: when the parent is participating in school activities
Who is Responsible?
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"
It is the teacher's responsibility to encourage parent involvement and convey the definition and share this leadership with parents
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
20 parents/ guardians took a 6 question survey on parental involvement
Calculated the percentage of all 20 parents
100%-parent involvement is important
28%-< 1hour, 61%- 2-3 hours, 11%- don't know
39% -often, 50%- very often, 11%- don't know
83%- yes, 17%- no
22%- often, 72%- very often, 6%- don't know
6%- yes, 33%- no, 62%- both
How much is too much?
can sometimes work at the school

Regardless of income, ethnicity or background, students with involved parents are more likely to prosper in the future.
