Parental involvement reflects the four principles upon which the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) is based. These principles provide the framework through which families, educators and communities can work together to improve teaching and learning. These principles are accountability for results, local control and flexibility, expanded parental choice, and effective and successful programs that reflect scientifically based research.
Parental Involvement also focuses on accountability between schools and parents for high student achievement, while offering parents important insight into their children’s education, the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher and the quality of the schools they attend.
