Parental engagement in learning and schooling: Lessons from research

Parental engagement in learning and schooling: Lessons from research | Educational Readings | Scoop.it
In 2004, the Australian Parents Council (APC) and the Australian Council of State School Organisations (ACSSO) persuaded the Australian Government to invest in the development of a national Family-School Partnerships Framework. Trialled in 61 schools in 2005, the framework was endorsed by all State, Territory and Federal Education Ministers in 2008. The Family-School & Community Partnerships Bureau was also established in 2008. A joint initiative of ACSSO and APC, its purpose is to share promising practice, conduct research and provide practical support and advice to parents, principals, teachers and other education stakeholders. The Family-School & Community Partnerships Bureau is particularly excited to launch this publication, Parental engagement in learning and schooling: Lessons from research. A substantial contribution in Australian and international contexts, this paper pulls together the research on parental engagement, highlights the benefits, demonstrates what works, and identifies strategies available to facilitate parental engagement. Following on from this research, APC and ACSSO will continue working collaboratively with the Australian Government to explore policy options to further embed parental engagement within the education reform agenda. As well, we are working in partnership with the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) to identify common practices amongst teachers and school leaders that catalyse and sustain effective parental engagement in students' learning. On the basis of available evidence, this paper concludes that positive parental engagement in learning improves academic achievement, wellbeing and productivity. It further concludes that resourcing and effectively progressing parental engagement initiatives is warranted, if not essential to, education reform and the future of Australia. We take this opportunity to thank Dr Lance Emerson and his team at the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth. We deeply appreciate ARACY's commitment and expertise in bringing together the best ‘thinkers and doers’ to examine evidence and experience on what is needed to help young Australians reach their full potential.
