The purpose of this capstone is to examine the importance of parental involvement and how it helps students achieve academic success. Given the difficulty of having parents involved in school, this study examines whether one size fits all parental involvement would benefit students’ future education. Through the use of literature review and a case study, the finding revealed that parental involvement is a crucial component to student’s academic success leading students to higher education and that significant accommodations by teachers would need to be made to tailor to each family’s needs to get parents involved in schools.
