Family participation in education
I feel this needs to be address more in detail. As previously posted in other threads, I feel it is extremely important to be involved with your children in their education. I am emphasizing this even to a greater degree. Homework was one of the greatest examples of being involved with your child in school and to assist your child through learning in connection with the school.
Key factors are to stay intense about your kid's education. Keep in touch with the teacher. Visit the school often, and help your child on the path of success.
In the following link it is said that family participation in education is twice as influential on learning as family socioeconomic status. This works for all. Those who stand to be benefited the most should reap greater results. The more the teacher knows the children the better she/he should be able to relate to them. The more you get to know your child's teacher the better you should be able to relate to he/she. The following link should help us to expand our line of communication.
