In today's society, schools are facing battles to involve parents in the education of their children. Many obstacles stand in the way of positive parent involvement. When communities, schools, teachers, and parents work together to support parent involvement, a child's social, physical, and academic dimensions of education will strengthen and mature, and all of those involved will reap with the benefits. However, for many reasons, no one method has proven to be effective in involving all parents. Researchers continue to explore many possibilities and suggest a variety of methods to involve parents.
