15 September 2022 | 10:00 - 10:30 | English | The importance of parents engagement in boosting the students' academic performance
OECD report 2018 shown that parents support is one of three key reasons to achieve academic excellence. And World Bank Report 2017 shown 90% of parents in Indonesia only participate once (or never) in their child’s class activities. This is obviously a big concern, and we can only assume that this is the major reason why Indonesia PISA score is always on the bottom list. With the pandemic situation, parents are “forced” to be involved and schools have no choice but to ensure that the parents are fully engaged to their kids’ learning. It leaves a big gap in many schools on how to effectively engage their parents for a positive outcome to ensure that their involvement will boost their kids’ academic performance and how the teachers and all school’s stakeholders can play a part in this initiative.
