Abstract

Education is essential for the advancement of society. Individuals with higher levels of education contribute to the development of a more informed and disciplined society. Families must educate their children to contribute to society as productive members. The purpose of the study was to learn more about teachers' perspectives of parental participation and how it affects students’ academic achievement. The research was carried out through the use of descriptive survey research. A random sampling technique was used to pick a sample of secondary school teachers from the district of Sialkot (public = 80; private = 80; total = 160) to get the necessary information about teachers' perceptions of parental involvement and kids' academic progress; a questionnaire was administered to the participants. They made personal visits to the schools, where they distributed questionnaires to teachers and collected information to keep the attrition rate as low as possible. The data were analyzed using statistical procedures such as the mean score, standard deviation, and the t-test to determine their significance. Parental satisfaction with their children's performance and progress was found to be high in private schools, whereas teachers of children in public schools complained that their student's parents were not involved in the growth of their children.
