Family Involvement has a positive effect on student behavior.
- When families are involved, students exhibit more positive attitudes and behavior.
- When students report feeling support from both home and school, they have more self-confidence, feel school is more important, and they tend to do better in school.
- Student at-risk behaviors such as alcohol use, violence, and other anti-social behaviors decrease as parent involvement increases.
