Statistics/demographics on school children and their parents

Answers from a BUSLIB listserv question:

You can consult publications from the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics, such as the annual (see also earlier years):  Parent and family involvement in education, from the National Household Educations Surveys Program of 2012 (NCES 2013-028) - (http://nces.ed.gov/pubs2013/2013028.pdf)

There is, a new book from Harvard University Press on this topic:  Robinson, Keith and Angel Harris. 2014. The Broken Compass: Parental Involvement with Children's Education. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press (http://crsi.nd.edu/evaluations/new-research-on-parental-involvement-in-schools/).

Parent and Family Engagement, from the U. S. Dept. of Education (http://www.ed.gov/parent-and-family-engagement)

 The Center for Public Education has:  Back to school: How parental involvement affects student achievement (full report) - (http://www.centerforpubliceducation.org/Main-Menu/Public-education/Parent-Involvement/Parent-Involvement.html)

There's also the National Educational Association - a search of their site yielded 238 hits (for parental involvement and after school) - (http://www.nea.org/home/37004.htm?q=parental%20involvement%20and%20after%20school )
