Parent Involvement in Education: The Key to Your Child’s School Success
For school-age children, those lazy days of summer are almost gone and the challenges of school and homework are the order of the day. But kids are not the only ones who need to work in order to achieve success in school; parent involvement in education is also needed. Family involvement in a child’s learning is the single most important factor in predicting school success. Effective family-school partnerships require the investment of parents, educators and even the larger community. In this week’s Mom Enough show, Marti & Erin discuss the most important things parents can do to support their child’s learning, and they inspire you to think creatively about how to work well with teachers and rally the community to encourage and celebrate children’s learning.
