Research shows that 90 percent of the general public believes that support from parents is the most important way to improve schools. When parents are involved, students generally have better school attendance, higher grades and test scores, decreased use of drugs and alcohol, better self-esteem and fewer incidences of school suspensions. Student achievement is much higher when more parents are involved in schooling and school activities. The National Center for Education Statistics of the U.S. Department of Education “looks at information about demographics, which includes "social characteristics, and economics of children and school districts. These pieces of information all influence student success.” The NCES goes on to say that it’s imperative for educators to understand their districts’ demographics and that students’ home lives shape their success in school before they start formal education.
