Can Students Become Better With Active Parent Participation In School?
Everyone agrees that parent teacher meetings are an important part of a student’s educational well-being. The time spent in these meetings allows both the educators and the guardians to gain a better understanding of the child’s abilities, plan curriculum, and scholastic goals. These meetings even become more crucial when it involves 504 students or disciplinary issues.
How Effective Are Parent-Teacher Conferences?
“When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.”
That’s the conclusion of A New Wave of Evidence, a report from Southwest Educational Development Laboratory. When schools engage families in ways that improve learning and support parent involvement at home and school, students make greater gains. When schools build partnerships with families that respond to parent concerns, honor their contributions, and share decision-making responsibilities, they are able to sustain connections that are aimed at improving student achievement.
But, There is Just One Problem…….
However, the reality in today’s world is that many parents simply cannot attend every meeting. Obligations at work and those that travel may find it hard if not impossible to attend. Not just that, weather, health, and many other external conditions can also play a role in non-attendance. Even educators and specialist can find it difficult to attend every meeting based on their increasing workloads.
Without a doubt, it shows that there is a need to create a solution that allows parents to participate actively in their child’s education even when they are busy at work or traveling.
“With the demands of their work environment, how can parents meet up with their responsibilities at school? Inquire IQ provides some insight into this problem”
