Parent Support

Experience and research suggest that when parents and other adults show an interest in and support a child's education, the child's chances for academic success are greatly increased. Parent involvement and participation educational activities can often be a motivator for the child. Interest and support can raise his or her academic achievement, improve attitudes and performance, and foster better communication
