How involved are parents with their children’s education today? In the old days, it was a common sight to see parents thronging a PTA meeting, interacting with their children’s teachers, checking on their child’s progress at school. However, this habit seems to be fading out. Fewer parents wait for their children to come home, to ask them about their homework or grades.
Although parents are still involved with their children’s education at the elementary stage, this tends to get reduced at the middle and high school levels. This lack of parental involvement is obviously having a detrimental effect on their children’s education.
