Indian Parents are More Keen with Children's Homework!

Parent Interventions

Indian notion of family and the ways of parental intervention have always been a topic for discussion, globally. A recent study conducted by UK based Varkey foundation, done over 27,000 parents across 29 countries proves that Indian parents are the keenest and optimistic ones about their child's education.

The way Indian parents show interest in their child's school work and the optimistic belief they have in the educational system of the country is much appreciated in the study.  

95 per cent of the Indian parents help their children with their education. 62 per centof Indian parents spend more than six or seven hours with the children over a week for the same.

Meanwhile, the numbers are so low when it comes to parents from UK and other countries. 


72 per cent of Indian parents said that education standards have improved in the last 10 years, higher than any other country surveyed and 87 per cent of Indian parents rated the quality of teaching at their child's school as good, compared with a global average of 78 per cent.
