District officials turn to home visits to boost schools is a lengthy article in The Washington Post about teachers making home visits.
Here’s an excerpt:
Hundreds of D.C. teachers will spend weekends and evenings this fall visiting students and their parents at home, hoping to lift academic achievement by creating stronger partnerships between families and the schools. The push to visit students on their own turf is a shift for the District’s school system, which often has been accused of alienating the families it serves. Now, the aim is to help teachers and parents become allies instead of adversaries in the day-to-day work of educating the city’s children.
