Did you see that according to a study performed through three sociology departments at North Carolina State University, Brigham Young, and the University of California, parental involvement has as much impact as school choice as to whether a child will excel in school.  The research further determined that parental involvement is more significant in a child’s academic performance than what the school might have to offer.

Small tasks such as showing interest in homework and attending school functions were shown through the study to have an impact on how well kids perform in school.  The study concluded that parents need to be aware of how important they are, and they need to invest time in their children.  For a family to be successful from the children’s perspective, parents need to check homework, attend school events, and let their children know that school is important.
