The American Dream Academy is based upon more than 10 years of university research into what schools can do to get parents involved and teach them how to support their children’s academic achievement. “Why Do Parents Become Involved in Their Children’s Education?” is the seminal work of Hoover-Dempsey and Sandler of Vanderbilt University published in 1997. Dr. Joan Walker, a researcher at Pace University in New York state continues to expand upon that foundation and incorporates data from the American Dream Academy to quantify the success of ADA in empowering parents to advocate for their children.
