Parent Involvement in Education from Kindergarten to High School

Data about school-age children are currently collected in the NHES's Parent and Family Involvement in Education (PFI) Survey. The PFI survey collects data about students who are enrolled in kindergarten through grade 12 and asks questions about school choice and various aspects of parent involvement in education, such as help with homework, family activities, and parent involvement at school. Parents are the respondents.
