involvement education scored significantly higher on the
language section of a norm-referenced achievement test than
did fourth-grade students whose parents did not participate
in the parent involvement training. No difference was
evident in the areas of reading and mathematics. Parents'
opinions of the school did not change because of the parent
involvement training. Students7 motivation for school
improved when their parents participated in the parent
involvement training. There was no change, however, in the
responses of children whose parents did not participate in
the parenting program. No difference was found in the
children's behavior, based on the number of disciplinary
referrals, between the experimental and control groups after
the parent involvement training.
Positive effects cited from this study were in the
areas of academic language and student motivation. No
significant difference was found in the areas of parent
opinion, discipline, reading, or mathematics scores.
