Why This Indicator Matters

The Vermont Department of Health reports that "one of the strongest predictors of students’ success in school is the extent to which their parents stay involved with their schoolwork.  A national study of adolescent health found that youth who reported a 'connectedness' to their parents/family and school were the least likely to engage in risky behaviors.  Parental expectations regarding school achievement were also associated with lower levels of risk behaviors."  (Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey report, 2015).
