Schools are over rated and parents are most likely the single most critical link in the educational chain. Parents do not have to be well educated. They only need to support the child by tracking on homework, grades and providing space and an environment for the child to learn what is taught in School.
“Fifteen-year-old students whose parents often read books with them during their first year of primary school show markedly higher scores in PISA 2009 than students whose parents read with them infrequently or not at all. The performance advantage among students whose parents read to them in their early school years is evident regardless of the family’s socioeconomic background. Parents’ engagement with their 15-year-olds is strongly associated with better performance in PISA.”
