Are you an involved parent?

November 21, 2011

If you have kids in school, you’ll be interested in the following article “How About Better Parents?” from the New York Times.
If your kids aren’t in school yet, you might want to start reading to them every day (book worms rock!).

If you are an “involved parent” read what the study found:

“The study found that getting parents involved with their children’s learning at home is a more powerful driver of achievement than parents attending P.T.A. and school board meetings, volunteering in classrooms, participating in fund-raising, and showing up at back-to-school nights.”
