Parent Power

Posted: 4/30/2013

Parents have an important role in their children’s education
Parents have an important role in their children’s education.

(NAPSI)—Good news for parents who wonder whether their children are getting a quality education, and if not, whether there is anything they can do about it. The experts at the Center for Education Reform, the leading voice in education reform issues in the U.S., have some suggestions about how parents can empower themselves to get the answers and results they deserve:

How to Help Improve Your Child’s Education

• Know Your Power: Check out the Center’s Parent Power Index, an interactive tool that parents can use to discover whether their community gives them the power to improve education—and if not, what to do to get it.

• Know your options. Understand what choices you have about where, what and how your kids learn.

• Get active to bring up any problems or questions at a home-school association or a parent- teacher organization meeting.

• Communicate clearly, calmly and forcefully about any issues, first to teachers, then to principals. Let them know you want to help them work out the right balance. Ask for whatever your concern is to be explored, at internal professional development and teacher training sessions. Educators should be encouraged to come up with ways to help students do better.
