According to G. Olsen and M.L. Fuller, researchers have evidence for the positive effects of parent involvement on children, families, and school when schools and parents continuously support and encourage the children's learning and development (Eccles & Harold, 1993; Illinois State Board of Education, 1993). According to Henderson and Berla (1994), "the most accurate predictor of a student's achievement in school is not income or social status but the extent to which that student's family is able to: 1. Create a home environment that encourages learning Express high (but not unrealistic) expectations for their children's achievement and future careers. 2.
However, parent involvement is a two-way collaborative effort requiring educators and parents working together to help students be successful in their academics and have a healthy social emotional development. Because of the unclear nature of what parental involvement entails many schools have adopted the Epstein model for parent involvement. This framework was developed to assist schools and parents to work collaboratively with each other by clearly defining each other’s roles in improving parent-school relationship to help students be successful in school and at

IV. Purpose or Thesis Statement If you are someone who strives to help children grow mentally and developmentally and model God given roles and abilities being an elementary teacher would give you a chance to become part of a great career.

ACS-subsidized child care has two purposes. It advances family prosperity by permitting parents to focus more on their employment. In addition it supports child defense, child care and preventive administrations, and serves families that are destitute or need of child watch over restorative or social reasons. In the meantime, it gives the childrens a strong establishment for proper advancement and training. Instructors and assistants work to help kids grow physically, socially, and inwardly, and every system worked by an associated patron has an instructive segment to advance in school.
She states that technology can also be used in school. She addresses that moms are trying to protect their children from technology and there are the dads who are trying to embrace it and tell the kids to use it because it has its benefits. She also mentions that it is a very urgent question when a lot of schools are now adding using technology to a daily basis and that helps prove her argument about the benefits of technology. She uses evidence that states that more than 80% of school districts will start doing that, which shows how technology has a positive impact on schools and education. “Yet, according to the latest findings from the research firm Grunwald Associates, barely half of U.S. parents agree that mobile technology should play a more prominent role in schools.” Dockterman uses this quote to strengthen her argument by showing how parents are also agreeing to using technology in schools and the positive impact it will have and how some parents may not think the same but she used the quote to show how majority of them to think it will have the impact on the children and their education.
The Purpose of the Study The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there is a statistically significant relationship between servant instructional leadership behaviors in two urban middle charter schools and reading literacy. The variables of the study are a reflection on principal leadership being only second to the teacher’s influence in the classroom with student achievement. School climate is an important factor in developing a school culture and it has a very strong effect on student achievement (Cohen, 2006). This study contributed towards increasing the knowledge-base of effective middle school leader behaviors necessary for those seeking middle school administrative and teaching positions and for pre-service and in-service

The job is to be a liaison between home, school, and the community. This is done with gaining trust and respect as well as help with problem-solving for at-risk students.

“The first reason I learned as a homeschool teacher is that .. it’s the students that lead the way.” (Patti Armstrong, n.d). Homeschoolers are getting higher grades than public schools student. Moreover, the united states is offering new features that help homeschoolers to learn more in an easiest way. Also, families tend to get their kids in homeschooling education to have more plenty time. There are several reasons to give students a homeschooling education, students will focus more on the lessons, having more chances to practice on exams, also they will have plenty of time to spend with parents, and feel the responsible of importance of education.
By checking specific parenting practices that are 4 Amenable to change, such as parent involvement, and the tool by which these practices influence academic performance, program may be developed to increase a child’s academic performance. Although parent involvement has been found to be related to increased academic performance, the specific mechanisms through which parent exerts its influence on a child’s academic performance are not yet fully understood (Hill & Craft, 2003). Parental involvement has been defined and measured in multiple ways, including activities that parents gain at home and at school and positive attitudes parents have towards their child’s education, school, and teacher ( Epstein, 1996; Gronick&Slowiaczek, 1994; Kohl, Lengua, & McMahon,
Moreover these 3A’s are interdependent (Elizabeth B. Hurlock, 1980). If a person receives affection and acceptance from his parents, he will try to achieve a lot in his life and vice versa and so on. So parents’ acceptance is very important for a child and the researches also show this importance, as in the research (Harter, 1998; Ryan et.al, 1995; Sroufe and Waters, 1977) determined that the parents’ behaviour influence child’s academic performance. Another research conducted on secondary school going students showed considerable relationship between perceived parental acceptance score and children’s academic performance (Aize Obayan and Kareem Jimah-Cook, 1992). This shows that children do get affected by their parents’ behaviour towards them.
(Lareau, 2011) As shown in the book parents who have brought up their children using concerted cultivation nurture their children 's development and advance their social and cognitive skills by organizing their lives in a particular way. A major component of
Open Communication and Involvement Through open communication this encourages parental involvement, more understanding of factors which affect the student 's’ performance and an open dialogue for the teacher and the parents to work together to create a balance for the student. The disconnection between parents and the school system affects parents and students including public housing residents, and the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis (HACA) employees. HACA Helping HACA employees want to see their residents succeed, especially students by supporting several new initiative proposals including the Partnership and Resource Development. The HACA proposal initiative will increase parent participation in the schools which
In order to encourage parents to participate in this way, schools need to improve communication across linguistic and cultural barriers. Schools can create organizational structures to help parents participate in schools. Schools can hire an intermediary such as a bilingual liaison who can can make Latino parents aware of the power structure of US schools and provide linguistic support to help them navigate it. In the US, parents play important role in students’ education, so it is important to develop relationships with parents (Quiocho & Daoud, 2006; Zarate, 2007). In the United States, parental involvement in the school is considered a positive influence on students’ education.
