(CNN) - Across the country, fathers are taking part in public events aimed at sending a critical message: Dads’ involvement in education is crucial for school children.
In New York, it’s become a state-wide celebration, appropriately entitled “Dads take your child to school.”
In parts of the country, the events are inspired by the “Million Father March.”
Numerous studies show that kids with involved fathers have all sorts of academic advantages, including better linguistics skills, an improved ability to handle stress, and some other “hidden benefits.”
