While this is based on education prior to the pandemic, I think the issue of the involvement of parents in public schooling has reached new importance.

New Report on Parental Involvement in U.S. Public Schools in 2017-18

The National Center for Education Statistics released a new Data Point report today, Parental Involvement in U.S Public Schools in 2017-18. This report examines parent and/or guardian involvement in various school-based engagement opportunities, as reported by public primary, middle, and high school principals.

Findings include:

  • Principals reported that in the 2016-17 school year, all nine parent engagement opportunities NTPS listed were more often available at primary schools than at middle or high schools.
  • Among schools offering the same parent engagement opportunity, primary school students more frequently had high parent participation at seven out of the nine events than did middle school students.
  • Primary school students also more often had high parent attendance at eight out of the nine events than did high school students.
  • Primary school principals less often reported low attendance at any of the nine events when compared to principals at middle or high schools

offering the same parent engagement opportunities.

Note: High parent attendance meant 76-100 percent of all students enrolled at the school had at least one parent attending the event and low parent attendance meant 0-25 percent of all students had at least one parent attending the event.
