Effects of Parental Involvement in Education on the Academic Achievement of Students in Ghana


The study investigated the effect of parental involvement in education on students’ academic achievement in the Sekyere South District of Ghana. The study through purposive sampling technique sampled 363 parents. The study used a questionnaire to collect primary data from the parents. Secondary data on students’ academic achievements over two years (2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic years) were obtained from the Academic Units of the selected schools. Results show that the majority of parents were not communicating vital information to school authorities or teachers from time to time, did not support student ICT learning in the schools, did not help their students with their home learning and failed to discuss their students’ academic performances with teachers. However, the majority of parents attended school programmes, provided learning materials for their students, requested extra classes for their students, and were involved in the selection of textbooks for their students. This study found a strong significant positive correlation between parental involvement in education and students’ academic achievement. All the components of parental involvement in education impacted students’ academic achievement.
