"Research also establishes that parental involvement has a significant effect on children's achievement and adjustment......Differences in parental involvement have a much bigger impact on achievement than differences associated with the effects of school in the primary age range.....Of the many forms of parental involvement, it is the 'at home' relationships and modelling of aspirations which play the major part in impact on school outcomes."
