dc.description.abstract Parents are important individuals in children's lives, for they provide them with appropriate guidance that leads them to success. This research project was conducted to determine the effects of parental involvement on children's academic achievement in relation to parents' socioeconomic status and educational background in a private and a public school in Greater Beirut. The participants were 957 students of cycle two at both schools, 722 parents, 50 teachers, and the two principals of the schools. Questionnaires and two interview schedules were the two major data collection instruments. The results obtained from the questionnaires and the interviews showed the importance of parental involvement and to what extent it is present in both schools in relation to parents' socioeconomic status and educational background. Moreover, the results taken on parental involvement are compared with students' achievement which showed a positive correlation. Therefore, future researchers shall focus on the effects of parental involvement on children's social and cognitive development. en_US
