Abstract

This abstract discussed a study that investigated the impact of family involvement on academic achievement at the higher secondary level. The study collected data from 400 parents of higher secondary school students using a convenient sampling technique. The study aimed to understand how family involvement affects academic achievement among higher secondary school students and how parents can support their children's education to promote positive outcomes. The study showed that family involvement significantly impacts student academic achievement, including higher grades, improved attendance, and greater motivation to learn. The study also found that parents more involved in their children's education were more likely to provide academic resources and guidance, establish high academic expectations, and create a supportive home environment. The study suggests that schools and educators should encourage family involvement and provide resources to support parents in promoting their children's academic success. The findings of this study provide insights into the important role that family involvement plays in higher secondary students' academic achievement and the potential benefits of promoting greater family involvement in education.
