Abstract (Summary)

Exposure to parental intimate partner violence (IPV) has been shown to be negatively correlated with children’s behavioral, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical outcomes. Yet, research studying the impact of IPV exposure on students’ academic performance is scarce, and the findings from the limited literature do not converge. This study aimed to examine the relationship between exposure to IPV and academic performance, and whether parental academic involvement and school support will combat the negative academic outcomes of children exposed to IPV. Results indicated that exposure to IPV was not associated with academic performance, and parental academic involvement and school support were not protective factors. However, it revealed a complex relationship between exposure to IPV, parental academic involvement, and school support that warrants further investigation by future studies. Understanding the influences that home interactions may have on students’ school functioning can be helpful in creating supportive interventions to support at-risk students.
