“Students with parents who are involved in their school tend to have fewer behavioral problems and better academic performance, and are more likely to complete high school than students whose parents are not involved in their school. Positive effects of parental involvement have been demonstrated at both the elementary and secondary levels across several studies…. Parental involvement in school life [is] more strongly associated with high academic performance for middle schoolers than helping with homework.” (Child Trends, 2013).
