Parental Involvement in Schools and Education IS Essential

OneWorld Progressive Institute Presents: EDUCATION AGENDA -
Parental Involvement in Schools and Education IS Essential

The education of children is a collaborative (team) effort.  If you drop your child off at school and have no input or knowledge of what is happening at school, you are not holding up your end.  It's your responsibility to see to it that home work is done; that field assignments are completed in a timely manner; that your child gets the help he/she needs.
Do You Know What Is Going on In Your Child’s School?
• Do You Know How Equipped Your Child is for the 21st Century?
• Do YOU KNOW with Which Social Groups Your Child Is Involved?
• Does Your Child Participate in Bullying Others? Is your Child Being Bullied?

Does your child have specific concerns about school?  Are those concerns being addressed?

Learn how to get answers to these and other questions from OneWorld’s latest blog. Read it here:  http://oneworldpi.org/blog/archives/3293

Parental Involvement in the Nurturing of a Child’s Education and Overall Development is One of the Core Indicators of Later Achievement.

It is through this involvement that children understand and appreciate the importance of a solid education.

Parental involvement is, but not limited to, reading together, asking the children about their day at school and their performance in each subject, assisting with homework and projects, tutoring with materials and instruments provided by the school, regular communication with teachers for feedback on the child’s progress, and being actively involved in school activities through volunteering and attending school functions and meetings.

The complete blog post about Parental Involvement being Essential,  with several reference videos, can be found on the OneWorld web blog at:  http://oneworldpi.org/blog/archives/3293

We ask you to read and share it widely.  As schools try to implement the Common Core Education Standards, it is more important than ever that parents are involved and understand what is happening.  We at OneWorld appreciate your support and cooperation.  Please visit the OneWorld web site at:  www.oneworldpi.org  to learn much more about what we do to contribute to the GNH community.  N'Zinga Shäni
