ENGAGING FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES IN STUDENT LEARNING
But when it comes to school, families are often left out of the discussion regarding the needs of their children in receiving the best education possible.
Throughout the scholastic experience many parents can list examples of the positive and negative impact scholastic policy, social engagement, cultural understanding and teaching strategies have had on their children. These experiences often leave parents frustrated, and they are compelled to advocate for their children but are left feeling shut out and helpless when they do.
Stress and harmonic imbalance at home can decrease student's ability to enjoy school and perform to the best of their abilities. So what can we, as educators do?
