The addition of the eighth goal therefore illustrates, in large part, the federal government’s acknowledgment of parents’ significance in education. This significance had not previously been acknowledged so strongly by any federal agency. Recognizing this significance, the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) devised a list of six national standards with the sole purpose of promoting meaningful parent and family participation in 1997. This organization has also led to many studies during recent years with the purpose of exploring the nature and intent of parents’ involvement in their children’s education. The rest of us have finally begun to recognize its merits.
