“The evidence is consistent and convincing: families have a major influence on their children’s achievement. When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better, stay in school longer, and like school more.”

-Henderson, Anne T. and Karen L. Mapp, A New Wave of Evidence: The Impact of School, Family, and Community Connections on Student Achievement, 2002, p.7
