Latest Issue Brief

Children with engaged families: have improved academic performance, school attendance, graduation rates, motivation and self esteem; are less likely to be suspended from school, abuse drugs or alcohol, or act out violently; and benefit from a greater overall well-being regardless of a family's household income, race or ethnicity. While many families recognize the value of actively engaging in their children's lives, some also face a series of common barriers to participating with school and out-of-school programming. Read IYI’s newest Issue Brief on "Family Engagement" to learn how to address the barriers to participation in children's activities that many families face.
