This is a great story reinforcing something that has been understood for a long time, but can never be repeated enough: The involvement of a child's parents in their academic lives has a tremendous effect on his or her success in school and beyond. (It was the top factor affecting student achievement that teachers cited in our Primary Sources survey in 2012.)

Anything we can do to help, support, encourage and empower parent as learning role models will go a long way to helping all children succeed.
