ASCD SmartBrief, a great way to get daily education news, just announced poll results to the question:
What is the most effective way for a school to communicate with parents about potentially sensitive topics?
As one would expect, the number one option was “communication from students’ teachers.”
The very close number response, though, seems bizarre to me. It was:
“Emails from the principal”
I wonder how parent engagement is going at the schools where the people who voted for that one work?
