"Parental Involvement and the Educational Trajectories of Youth in Russia" is a paper that studies the influence of parental involvement in the educational process on the educational achievements of Russian students and their educational strategies, such as studying in high school and successful admission to university.
The authors found that the results of school state examinations are positively associated with the active participation of parents in school meetings, the employment of tutors, and the provision of additional literature for the child. A negative relationship was found between homework control and student success. In general, the factor of ‘rational’ (not excessive) involvement is positively associated with educational achievement and educational choice, which may indicate the non-linear nature of the relationship.
