Research shows that when parents are actively involved with their children's education, students' grades are higher, their self-esteem is greater, and they are more socially adjusted. In fact, the most accurate indicator of a student's academic success in school is not tied to family income or social status, but the extent to which a family:
- Creates a home environment that encourages learning.
- Sets high but realistic achievement and career expectations.
- Becomes involved in their child's education and in the community.
In addition to attending parent-teacher conference and other special events, there are other opportunities to get involved at your child school, such as SSC (School Site Council), SGT (School Governance Team, PTP ( Parent Teacher Organization) and ELAC (English Language Acqusition Commitee). the more active you are at school, the more your child will be an active participant in their own learning.
