Parental involvement in education refers to the active participation of parents and guardians in their child’s educational journey. It recognizes the crucial role that parents play in supporting and enhancing their child’s learning experience both at home and in school. Engaging parents as partners in education has been found to have numerous benefits for students, schools, and the overall educational system.

In this topic, education events focus on strategies and practices that foster meaningful parental involvement. These events may include workshops, seminars, conferences, and panel discussions aimed at educators, administrators, parents, and community members.
