Evidence

Research shows that a successful approach to addressing the needs of vulnerable families, including those headed by Canadian-born parents, is to involve parents in their children’s academic life. Interaction in the school has been found to improve bonding and bridging social capital, thereby reducing risk factors for children. Through school involvement, parents benefit from parent support networks and develop self confidence and decision-making abilities.
