Parental Involvement. This is going to be the cornerstone to modern education. Parental involvement has been shown to improve academic performance of students and raise test scores and abilities. The most important aspect is to get parents involved in their child’s education as a partner, more than just attending parent/teacher conferences. Parents also need to monitor their children at home and be involved in their homework and their social activities. Parents must feel it is their responsibility to help educate their child.
