· Hundreds of research studies have been done over the past 30 years that show when parents get involved, children do better in school!
· When Parents get involved in their children’s education, their children are more likely to:
§ Earn better grades
§ Score higher on tests
§ Pass their classes
§ Attend school regularly
§ Have better social skills
§ Show improved behavior
§ Be more positive in their attitude towards school
§ Complete homework assignments
§ Graduate and continue their education
· One study showed that students from families with above-average involvement at school were 30 percent more successful in school than those kids whose families had below-average involvement. In this study, success was measured by GPA; test scores in math, science, reading, and social studies; promotion and retention rates; and teacher ratings.
· DADS Matter! In both two-parent and father-only households where dads are highly involved in their schools,
o Children are more likely to:
§ Succeed academically
§ Participate in extracurricular activities
§ Enjoy school
o They are less likely to:
§ Have to repeat a grade
§ Be suspended or expelled
