Parents Play a Role in School, Too
The job of a student is to learn. The job of a teacher is to teach. So where do parents fit in when it comes to school success? You play a bigger role than you may think. Research has found that when parents support learning and academics, students earn higher grades, attend school more regularly, and enroll in higher level courses. Teenagers end up with higher levels of motivation and self-esteem. In other words, teachers forge the path and students propel themselves forward, but parents are the fuel that drive students towards success. Get involved––be the fuel.
