Abstract

There always has been an overarching trend that parental involvement has a positive impact on the academic success of a student. Despite this idea, there is no definition of “parental involvement” so we are left without knowing which practices promote the academic success of a student. Through the study of many peer reviewed research studies and articles, I have focused my literature review on the aspects of parental involvement that have the most beneficial impact on student academic success – involvement at home and involvement in a student’s motivation (Gonzalex-DeHass, Willems & Holbein, 2005). With this information, present and future teachers and parents can improve the educational success and experience for students.
