Course INST 482: Issues in Education


An educator's goal is to continually expand the participation of parents on their child's life within school. The impact of parents' involvement in and out of school can greatly affect students' grades, self-esteem, and most importantly motivation to learn. The research conducted through surveys shows that teachers are conscious of the influence that parents have on their child's educational development and attainment.
