Leaders of Parent Engagement
40 years of international research in the USA, UK, Canada and Australia have shown that Parental Engagement is a key aspect of raising student achievement and wellbeing. This research demonstrates the significant influence that parents have on their children’s engagement with learning, and on their children’s educational achievements.


But parent engagement as opposed to parents being involved in the school is new for parents and teachers. 
It will require the changing of long held assumptions and beliefs by both about whose role and responsibility it is to educate the child. 


This will require the capacity building of both.

But cultural change takes time and good professional learning needs to be in the school.
So the best person to do this is in the school 
But who and so much else to do ………
