The Impact of Family Involvement on the Education of Children Ages 3 to 8: A Focus on Literacy and Math Achievement Outcomes and Social-Emotional Skills - Researchers looked at 95 studies conducted over the past 10 years on how family involvement affects literacy, math, and social-emotional skills of children three to eight. They found family involvement is important for literacy and math; a few studies found positive relationships between with social-emotional skills. The weakest link was between family involvement at school and children's outcomes. With direction, parents from diverse backrounds can become more engaged with their children. Recommendations are made for future inquiry. (Frances L. Voorhis et al. MDRC, October 2013)...
