Across the country parents and families are gaining greater recognition for the tremendous impact they have on their children’s success at school. Mass PIRC is encouraging all families to take another look at how they can participate in their children’s education.

We devote this Web site to helping families get ideas and information on how to create an environment where learning becomes a central part of family life and how to partner with their children’s educators.

    Hear President Obama on parental involvement.

    "There is no program or policy that can substitute for a mother or father who will attend those parent-teacher conferences or help with the homework or turn off the TV, put away the video games, read to their child. Responsibility for our children's education must begin at home."
