I think every educator would agree that parent involvement is very important in student achievement. But did you every wonder which method was most effective or had the highest impact on student achievement? Does spending your time on parent flyers, progress reports, PTA meetings, parent conferences, etc. actually have any effect?
A new study by The Center for Public Education analyzes various ways parents get involved with their local schools and which ones have the most significant impact on student achievement. This is a great resource for teachers that shows how to effectively involve parents in their child’s education.
The study, “Back to School: How Parent Involvement Affects Student Achievement” released by the National School Boards Association’s Center for Public Education analyzes various ways parents get involved with their local schools and finds that something as simple as engaging families in their children’s homework can be one of the best ways to advance their learning. View their findings and then adapt the research to your own classroom and parent communication methods.
