"If you want to ensure that children will be successful in school, you have got to be involved in their education.

It is because they are often the parents that are making sure that homework gets done, that their children are reading every day, and that their children are exposed to educational experiences outside of the classroom. It doesn't matter what school that they're at, they're going to succeed because they have that parent support.
