In a groundbreaking new study - The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education, Dr. Angel Harris and Dr. Keith Robinson have discovered that parental involvement, at least the way it is currently envisioned, doesn't quite work the way we think it does to ensure students' academic success.

They will talk to us about their research, what it means for the future of parent engagement, what schools should focus on instead, and what parents can and should do to support their children.
