Over the years, parental involvement has been correlated with student success. Parental involvement can mean many different things, from traditional parenting including character development (morals & ethics, sense of right and wrong, well-formed conscience, golden rule, work ethic, motivation, responsibility, self-discipline, etc), to being a coach, mentor, and sounding board for the child, or being an advocate for the child to the system, or volunteering in classrooms and on field trips, or providing fundraising for programs.

A few old posts that mention parental involvement:
1) who gets into gifted programs (2015)
2) parenting arms race (2014)
3) Common Core movie (2014)
4) parents not allowed to see test results (2013)
