The growing relevance of parental involvement for the variation in children's educational outcomes requires us to examine in detail the distribution of parental involvement across different demographic groups and the extent to which the effects of parental involvement vary across different populations. However, most evidence on parental involvement and children's schooling is based on American education. Very limited literature has examined the effects of parental involvement on educational outcomes outside of the United States. There is little known about cross-national variation in the relationship between parental involvement and children's educational success. With the lack of comparative studies across countries having different institutional features of educational systems, we know little about the extent to which the findings of the effect of parental involvement in the US are conditioned by the American educational system.
