This report uses data from the 1996 National Household Education Survey to address questions about the level of involvement of parents with their children's schools and the relationship between involvement and student outcomes. The report looks at differences in fathers' and mothers' involvement by family and parent type. It also examines differences in nonresident fathers' and mothers' involvement with their children's schools. The association between fathers' and mothers' school involvement and student outcomes is explored by family type and resident status. (Author abstract)
