“在广泛研究的基础上，它得出结论，父母;在影响儿童的教育成功方面，对教育的态度是最重要的- -比父母的教育或职业地位、家庭和学校本身的物质环境更为重要”。Mackinnon等人(1995:26)“继续认为父母更多参与的概念受到欢迎，这种参与在Plowden之后的一年有所增加”。这表明父母的态度无论是正面的还是负面的影响孩子的教育,因为如果父母对教育产生负面影响,因为他们有一个贫穷、教育不成功或可怕的经验,那么他们更有可能表现出消极的或很少感兴趣他们孩子的教育,在回顾他们的孩子很可能会有消极的态度教育。也表明,孩子表现得更好当父母孩子教育根据研究显示兴趣在中学成绩进行Feinstein et al(1999)“发现儿童的父母展示高水平的学业兴趣可以在15 - 17%之间的进步在数学和阅读11至16岁之间的学生相比,父母没有兴趣”。
“based on extensive research, it concluded that parents; attitudes to education were of supreme importance in influencing children’s educational success – more so than the parents’ educational or occupational status, than material circumstances at home and at schools themselves”. Mackinnon et al (1995:26) “continues the concept of greater parental involvement was favourably received and this involvement has increased in the year since Plowden”. This shows that parental attitude whether negative or positive has an impact on their child’s education, because if a parent has a negative impact on education because they had a poor, unsuccessful or appalling experience of education, then they are more likely to show a negative or very little interested in their child’s education, which in retrospect their child will more than likely have a negative attitude towards education. It is also shown that children perform better when a parent shows interest in their child education according to research carried out on the attainment in Secondary Schools by Feinstein et al (1999) “found that children of parents showing high levels of interest in their schooling can progress between 15-17% more in maths and reading between the ages of 11 and 16 as compared to pupils whose parents showed no interest”.
