The only people more passionate about the students than their teachers...are their parents!Sometimes this passion can be synergistic as the two collaborate and help one another to support a student’s growth, but in other situations the collaboration is non-existent, one sided, or negative. In some schools, educators express that the parents aren’t involved or even worse, may be the root of problems, but when the question is turned around to ask how the school/teachers engage parents-like reflecting on if the only contact is home is when there is a problem or if they we have flexible ways to met parent’s needs like for meeting times or methods of communication...the tone changes. The answers often reveal that we too play a role in dysfunctional home school relationships.
Join us this Sunday night, November 22nd, at 8pm on #EdChatRI with guest moderator Nicole Bucka, @nbucka as we talk together, educators and parents, about how to improve our home-school collaboration
