Children with involved parents aremore likely to pass their classes, gradu-ate, and further their education afterhigh school. And when lots of parentsget involved, it helps teachers and theschool as a whole.Did you know that parents have a
significant effect on their children’s
education? It’s true.Good education isn’t just about teach-
ers and school
what you do as a par-ent really counts. There have beenhundreds of research studies on par-ents and school, and they all show thesame thing: When parents get in-
volved in their children’s education,
good things happen.Meeting and communicating with theteacher is important, too. Students dobest when parents and teachers worktogether as partners. Let the teacherknow about anything that may affect
your child’s performance: strengths
and weaknesses, learning style, studyhabits, special interests, family is-sues, personality traits, or behaviorconcerns. The teacher is an expertwhen it comes to education, but noone knows more about your childthan you.
