Abstract
Abstract
Parental involvement in the classroom continues to have an impact on students’ achievement. Research shows that it can be difficult for parents today to become involved in their child’s education due to varying situations. Using previous research (Baird, 2015, Hosseinpour, Yazdani, & Yarahmadi, 2015), the current study examined parent involvement and parent attitude towards school , how it can affect their child’s success in school in the form of test scores, and the effects of parent involvement rate on the child’ mental health.  Research found that parent involvement does increase academic success, mental health, and behavioral/emotional engagement (2015). Participants completed a survey and semi-structured interview on the effects of parental involvement in their classrooms. Results suggest that parental involvement has a positive correlation to student success in the classroom. Implications of results are discussed.
