ABSTRACT
In this article the author draws attention to the importance of parents and community involvement in improving academic learning of the pupils. Pupils' academic accomplishment is not a unilateral process: the parents and educators must actively facilitate the education of pupils. This should function in four levels: instructions at school, instructions at home, school governance and community services. Getting parents involved in the educational progression is a Herculean task since parents and teachers live in different life worlds that are separated by psychological barriers. Here the author tries to address some of the issues and offer tangible proposals to overcome the prevailing barriers.
