It appears that a big new initiative is beginning in England called Family Learning Works. It’s mission is:
Every child’s education must include family learning to increase their levels of attainment at school, to prepare them for the rapidly changing labour market and help secure a prolonged economic recovery.
I’ve embedded a video below about the program. I don’t dispute the concerns that are voiced in the program and video, but I’m not too comfortable with the tone. It seems a little accusatory against parents for my taste.
You can read The Best Resources On Parent Engagement In Countries Other Than The U.S. to get a sense of the kind of parent engagement efforts about which I feel more positive.
