It said that a great school teacher is behind every great student in the public school system. Public schools, in fact, are made great by their teachers. Teachers, however, are not able to do it by themselves.
Parents who are deeply participating in their children’s education are rewarded by better performing student schools, according to the research.
The president of the National Education Association, Reg Weaver, has stated “teachers help students soar and make their hopes and dreams come true. And when parents are involved in their children’s education, they will go farther – and the schools they attend are better.”
The 2.8 million teachers represented by NEA, along with other education professionals and support staff offer these five simple steps to ensure your round involvement by parents in their children’s education:
1. Teachers should be consulted with on a regular basis. Take initiative and stay on top of her job situation instead of waiting for a problem to rise or grow.
2. Be familiar with the school, guidance counselors and related staff. The students are basically tracked by the education staff, so they should know enough about their children’s status to assist the parents as the students advance from grade to grade.
3. Go to events scheduled at the school. Parent-teacher days, school open houses, parent Association meetings, dance events and other functions and great networking occasions for school staff and parents to discuss the circumstances with their children.
4. Become a school volunteer. Miscellaneous functions like school plays or homework helping are good ways to participate with the school activities or help coordinate trips.
5. Stay in touch and remain accessible. Getting to know others and keeping the lines open is a good way to coordinate better with other parents, friends, staff and provide support. This support can we helpful in working out problems that require several parties to resolve.
Weaver reports that “the home is an extension of the learning that takes place inside the classroom. When parents get involved in their child’s education, everyone wins.”Filed under Child Education | Comment (0)
