Abstract

ABSTRACT Children are active learners who continually attempt to balance their internal conceptions and view of reality with extrinsic recreations or the outer facts children encounter in their world. The interrelationship between humans and their social and physical environments significantly impacts the education and growth of children. An increasing body of research has shown that their home learning experience is vital in figuring out what they are interested in. This shows how important it is for parents to be involved in their children's learning process, and an educator's leadership behaviors indirectly magnify this process. This research aimed to determine the scope and level of parental engagement activities in schools and their impact on parents' participation with their children at home. Furthermore, the impact of parental involvement at home on their children's academic performance is also being studied. The sample consisted of 175 principals, 1575 teachers, 1750 pupils, and 1750 parents from six districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The data was acquired using established and self-administered questionnaires for leadership behavior and parental engagement. The result shows that the mediational effect of distributive leadership behaviors on parental engagement at home is outside the interval and is not working as a mediator. The educator's work experience significantly affects parental engagement at +1 standard deviation of work experience. Furthermore, parental engagement at home has a tremendous and positive effect on students' academic performance.
