This chapter discusses the benefits of parental involvement in their children's schooling. Results of several meta-analyses confirm a positive association between parent involvement, broadly defined, and various academic outcome domains (e.g. grades, achievement); and these positive associations hold across key subgroups of children, including students in general and gifted education, minority and non-minority students, elementary and high school students, and children in living in urban, rural, and suburban regions. Overall, there is one highly recommended strategy identified as most relevant to enhancing parent involvement to promote student success: parent-directed academic skills training.

Keywords:   parent involvement, school social work, social work practice, intervention, academic skills training
