Learners education process many factors can foster or

Learners are not the only important
factors affecting their educational lives. In fact, teachers are regarded as
determining agents in improving students’ academic development. Teachers need
to establish a great awareness of the knowledge and experience children bring into
the class and the support they receive from school staff (Stanikzai, 2013)
.Teachers are convinced about the positive effect of family involvement;
however, they avoid involving parents in the teaching process. This is mainly
because most teachers do not know how to deal with parents since they have not
been trained enough to be consulted with (Jones, 2001).

 

Based on the learners’ points of
views, through the education process many factors can foster or hinder
learners’ success. Among the varieties of influential factors, PI is the
concern of this study. Students hold different perceptions of parental
involvement. Fletke (1997) believes that most learners, especially elementary
learners want their parents to be involved in their education. She also found
that they want their parents’ attendance in parent-teacher conferences, parent
meetings, open houses, and extra-curricular activities. Active academic
involvement may communicate to students how much their parents and/or teachers
value their education, which may, in turn, motivate them to engage and succeed
in academic tasks (Régner, Loose, & Dumas, 2009).

Further, the research shows that the
more intensively parents are involved in their children’s learning the more
beneficial the achievement effects will be. This holds true for all types of
parental involvement in children’s learning as well as for students of all
types and ages. Higher parental involvement has a positive impact on many
indicators of students’ achievement including: higher grades and test scores,
enrolment in highly-accredited language programs and advanced classes, higher
successful completion of classes, lower drop-out rates, higher graduation
rates, and a greater likelihood of commencing postsecondary education.

Bringing up successful children and
guiding them through their life is a huge responsibility for parents. Most
parents want to be sure that their children are provided with thorough
educational opportunities. Nowadays, in many countries, English language
education has attracted considerable attention. It is noteworthy that although
parents play a critical role in promoting children’s educational life,
learners, teachers and other stakeholders especially managers of schools and
educational institutions have their own responsibilities in this respect. Via employing
modern methodologies, many private institutes around the world offer intensive
EFL programs in order to catch up with the worldwide spread of English
language. A balanced cooperation among these four groups will result in a
successful language learning experience for the children.
