MEXICO – Promoting parental involvement in schools: Evidence from Mexico (Felipe Barrera-Osorio, Paul Gertler, Nozomi Nakajima, Harry Patrinos, VOX)

Parents play an important role in their children’s educational experiences and outcomes, but they often face challenges when supporting their children through school. This column examines the effects of parental involvement programmes implemented at scale by the national government of Mexico. The results suggest that low-cost, group-based information interventions can increase parental engagement in schools, change parenting behaviour at home, and improve children’s behaviour in school. The impacts were particularly large for indigenous families, suggesting that parental involvement programmes can help improve school-family relationships for the most excluded populations
