The percentage of students who graduated on time from California high schools in the 2010-2011 school year rose 1.5% from the previous year. However, there is still a concerning percentage of students who are choosing to drop out of school (California Department of Education, 2012). It is groups of these students, as well as others, whose grades, attendance, and work completion are inconsistent. The desire to determine why students succeed or fail was the catalyst for this study. A review of the literature pertaining to this topic revealed a multitude of possible influences to school success. However, this study focused on only two of these possible influences: parental involvement and parental expectations. Part of the reason for the focus on these topics was for educators to understand how parental involvement and parental expectations are related to student success in a specific setting, thereby bringing possible areas for improvement into the foreground that have the capacity to increase student achievement. Data for this study was collected by using student surveys and interviews. The surveys were created to measure factors related to parental involvement and parental expectations. Approximately sixty students participated in the survey process. After the surveys were completed, interview questions were generated to expand and explain the initial findings from the survey. A total of six students participated in the interviews and responses from five of those interviews were used. The data offered by both the surveys and interviews were then analyzed and interpreted, providing the study0́9s final conclusions and answers to its research questions. This study asked two primary questions: 1. For students in an independent study school in Northern California, what is the relationship between levels of parental involvement and academic outcomes? 2. For this same population of students, are the academic expectations parents have for their children related to academic outcomes? For the first question, it was determined that a positive relationship exists between parental involvement and academic achievement. The answer to the second question was that parental expectations do not influence students to perform at a level that meets their parents' expectations.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2019 in the subject Didactics - Politics, Political Education, grade: 1.300, course: Doctor in Development Education, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss parental involvement in learning and its implication to the academic achievement of learners. It discusses parental involvement in learning, parents as leaders, parents as active partner in learning and parent-school connection. Also, it shows the challenges of parental involvement in learning, strategies for encouraging parental involvement in learning and the benefits of parental involvement. After a thorough reviews of the previous studies and based on the readings, this paper concluded that parental involvement is associated with a wide range of positive child outcomes in schools, such as good academic skills, positive attitudes and social competence. Parental involvement is a combination of commitment and active participation on the part of the parent to the school and to the student. There are many problems concerned with involvement. Organizations that advocate for education at the grassroots level are growing in number and they are working to organize parents, offering increased opportunities for parents to engage in education policy issues. The recommendation of this paper is to have a parental involvement in learning to make learning for children pleasant and encourages them to work even more as they seek to make those closest to them proud.

Traditional forms of parental involvement include participating in school activities such as Parent Teacher Associations (PTA), back-to-school nights, open houses, parent-teacher conferences, or volunteering at the school. Parental involvement has become a priority on school campuses nationwide because of the positive effect on student academic performance suggested by some researchers and the legal mandate of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 to implement parent participation strategies. The purpose of this study was to determine whether differences existed in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics achievement between fourth grade students whose family members were involved in school and fourth grade students whose family members were not involved in school. The sample consisted of 30 fourth grade students whose family members were highly involved in school and 30 fourth grade students whose family members were not involved. Independent t-tests were conducted to compare the ELA and mathematics district benchmark mean scores between the two groups. The results suggested that students of highly involved family members significantly outperformed those with family members who were not involved based on scores of the cumulative end-of-year district benchmark tests for ELA and mathematics for grade 4. The mean difference for ELA was 32.33 p=.001 and 52.73 (p=.001) for mathematics.

Student academic success has been associated with parental involvement in many studies. This study explored the relationship between parental involvement, at school and at home, and the effect it had on student success. Information was gathered from students and parents regarding parent involvement at home and at school. Student interviews were conducted to gather information regarding after school routines and support at home. In addition, parent questionnaire provided information on parent school involvement as well as information regarding involvement with homework. The data indicated that there is a positive relationship between parental involvement with homework and student academic success. Data regarding the relationship between parent involvement at school and academic success was inconclusive. However, it is important that teachers and parents work together to ensure that students are getting the support they need to be successful.

"The rationale of this literature review is to demonstrate a relationship between parent involvement and student academic success. Research reviewed all confirm positive correlation and reject the opposite. The key elements include parent involvement, responsibility, and participation in their children's education; collaboration between teacher, parent, student, and school; home learning environment support. Parental involvement is a mixture of dedication and active participation on the part of the parent to the school and to the student. There are many problems concerned with involvement. Many schools simply do not know how to deal with the nontraditional family and the areas of concern that it represents. The number of solutions that can be used to improve parental involvement are extensive. The most important of these, however, is for the school to be totally devoted. When these solutions are implemented the effects are great, especially for the student."--leaf 4.

The author studied the relationship between parental involvement and academic achievement in language arts and math and the extent to which parental involvement helps predict language arts and math achievement among elementary school students. In a quantitative, non-experimental study using a descriptive, correlational research design with multiple linear regression analysis, she found a significant relationship between achievement in language arts and mathematics and parental efficacy. The study population was comprised of parents of 4th-, 5th-, and 6th-grade students in 3 elementary schools in a working-class urban New Jersey school district diverse in ethnicity and language and high in poverty. She found significant relationships between parenting skills and parental efficacy and student achievement in language arts and mathematics. As parenting skills and parental efficacy increased, the level of student achievement in both subject areas also increased. Social networking was also found to correlate with higher student achievement.

Over the past several decades, research has indicated that when parents are involved in their childs academic endeavors, their children are more likely to succeed in school. However, these findings are not congruent with the perceptions of every parent. For example, several parents reported that as their children become older, their level of involvement should decrease, while other parents felt as if their non-involvement will not have an effect either way on their childs academic performance. The focus of this study was to investigate the ways college students perceived their parents involvement. Particularly, the overall objective of the study was to measure differences between groups based on the participants gender, grade point average, age, classification level, their parents income level and educational attainment. For this study, a survey design was employed to collect data. Two-hundred two (n=202) community college students participated in two empirical studies. The Parental Involvement Assessment (PIA), formulated by the researcher specifically for this study, was used to gather the data. In the preliminary study, Cronbachs Alpha on the instrument was found to be 0.819. Several ANOVAs were performed in order to determine the differences between groups on a number of measures. The results of this research indicated that parental involvement contributes to community college student success, regardless of gender. In addition, parents with higher income levels were more likely to be involved. Additionally, students who were not aware of their GPA indicated that they would know their GPA if their parents were involved. Last, amid other results, findings indicated that students with higher GPAs were more likely to be rewarded for grades, were more likely to be encouraged by their parents, and were more satisfied with the level of parental involvement. Limitations and directions for future research are discussed. Key words: parental involvement, academic achieveme.
