And the best way for middle school parents to help is...?

...according to researchers from Duke University,

... communicating your values and expectations about education; pointing out connections between schoolwork and current events; encouraging children to set goals and follow their dreams; discussing learning strategies, and preparing and making plans for the future. Basically, it means helping your kid make good decisions about school, with an understanding of what those decisions will mean to him or her, and linking class work with students’ interests and goals.

This factor overshadowed the impacts of helping with homework, visits to museums,
School-based involvement included attending parent meetings, volunteering for school activities or communicating with school officials.
