If you're not a data wonk, feel free to skip right over this blog post, but this information certainly at least deserves a highlight here. The federal government is out with a comprehensive study of parent involvement habits of K-12 parents nationwide.

Complete parent involvement study is here.

Will be good to benchmark this and see how these trends move. Of course, this objective data needs to be colored with the trickier subjective measures of the quality and effectiveness of that involvement. One thing to attend a parent-teacher conference (which is certainly good); another to really get into an effective partnership with your child's teacher.
