The Parent and Family Involvement Survey (PFI) is part of the National Household Education Surveys (NHES) Program developed by the National Center for Education Statistics at the U.S. Department of Education. In 2016, parents or guardians of a total of 13,523 students enrolled in public or private K-12 schools completed the PFI. One of the family characteristics the PFI identifies is parents’ languages. This Fast Facts sheet focuses on responses from parents in three language categories: households where neither parent speaks English, households where both parents speak English, households where one of two parents speaks English and the other speaks another language.
