The factors associated with students’ academic performance may have been addressed but the impact of parental involvement continues to be a significant issue. Some schools in Kenya post poor results amid claims that parents are not supportive. This study examined the effect of parental involvement in homework on academic performance in public primary schools in Teso North Sub County, Busia.
Academic performance is the dependent variable, which was measured using the cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA). A quantitative relational design was employed to investigate the degree to which motivation predicts a students' academic performance.
Homework is an important time to make connections and reflect; on self, family, friends, new or familiar information, and the world beyond. What you present to your students will determine the heights they will climb to continue to maintain their academic success.
There are many literatures which deal with the effects of family background in students’ academic achievement. The U.S Department of Education (2004) defines “student achievement” as a students success in an academic discipline, an exhibited level of competency on some type of standardized test or group point average.

One major obstacle to academic achievement is the challenge of shielding academic goal pursuit from unwanted distractions. Because academic success requires continuous striving in the face of distractions (e.g., paying attention in class, completing homework assignments, studying, concentrating during a test), there are numerous opportunities.
In educational institutions, that success is measured by academic performance. This is how well a student meets standards set out by the local government and the institution itself. As career competition grows stronger in the workplace, the importance of students doing well in school has caught the attention of parents, legislators and government education departments.
