Do Schools Work Hard Enough to Engage Parents? is a new and useful post by Peter DeWitt at Education Week.
He shares some practical suggestions.
Here’s how the post ends:
Parental involvement is about involving parents in all aspects of the educational conversation. Not everyone will take part in it, but those who do may help stretch everyone’s thinking. We want to make sure that when our parents and students leave us, they feel as though we listened to what they were saying at the same time we educated their children.
