The teacher’s work generally requires a lot of dedication, consistency and time; therefore he has to work with the school administration, his colleagues, parents and the community because education is a collaborative venture. Although teachers labor to ensure that every child is groomed to be a positive influence in the society, parents’ involvement in their children’s education is pivotal in the children’s academic success.
However parents make their choices based on different
ideas about their roles in their children’s education and their
decisions to be involved are based on several factors. Some of these
factors include parents’ orientation, personal experiences and exposure.
Yet there is a need for parents to play an active role in their
children’s education, so all efforts should be made to encourage and
educate them so that they will see the need for their support and how
they can be participants.
