      In particular, parents in low income communities often need much more information about how to promote achievement in their children, and it is up to the schools to provide this information. Hill noted that it is essential to " understand each community's unique barriers and resources for establishing and maintaining effective collaborations. The achievement gap between children from high- and low-income families is roughly 30 to 40 percent larger among children born in than among those born twenty-five years earlier. In fact, it appears that the income achievement gap has been growing for at least fifty years, though the data are less certain for cohorts of children born.

    This paper investigates the relationship between parent involvement over time and children's academic achievement for a sample of low-income families participataing in a longitudinal stud of language and literacy development. Survival analysis is used to predict risk of retention and risk of special education placement in elementary school. Parental Involvement Practices. It is important to examine parental involvement, both at school and at home, since both are associated with achievement (Hill & Tyson, ).Research shows that Latino parents are perceived as under-involved by teachers (DePlanty, Coulter-Kern, & Duchane ; Ramírez, ), but some studies find that parental involvement is comparable across ethnic groups ().

    As noted earlier, the literature shows that children’s perceptions about PI variables appear to be better predictors of student achievement than parents’ perceptions [8, 9, 42]. In addition, most of the studies show that PI and its probable influence on achievement declines as children . Basically, a parental involvement policy enhances collaboration between parents and teachers, reduces learner absenteeism and drop-out rates, restores parents' confidence in their children's.

Parental involvement can make a positive difference at all age levels. Parental involvement tends to be the greatest with young children and tends to taper off as children get older.

Studies have shown, however, that involvement of parents of middle and high school students is equally important.

The research also shows that parent involvement leads to more teacher satisfaction. Noting that the evidence of families influence on their childrens school achievement is consistent, positive, and convincing, this report examines research on parent and community involvement and its impact on student achievement.

The fact that children from low-income, single-parent families actually earn higher grades than children from two-parent homes with similar income suggests that single parents who work teach their children coping strategies that limit the impact of financial hardship, low parent involvement, and other risk factors [9].Parental involvement (PI) in their children's schools has been shown to have a positive influence on the children's behaviours and academic achievement.

The purpose of this study was to examine predictors of PI and relations of PI in schools to child externalizing and internalizing behaviours. Data were from the fifth-grade wave of the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project, with.Additional research regarding the significance of parent involvement and parent educational attitudes is important because it will inform the thinking of current and future teachers and educators about parent involvement and parent attitudes regarding education and the effects these views on children’s academic achievement.
