Partner with Parents

As I met with students and parents this week for the yearly spring conferences, I recognized the value of partnering with parents with regard to teaching students well.

I also wondered if we give this valuable effort the right amount of time and focus. After all if we have strong parent-teacher-student partnerships, children will learn more and do better.

How can we rethink the structures, routines, time, and effort that support these partnerships. What more can we do to add value to this critical relationship. I will think more on this in the days to come. In the meantime, I'm open to your thoughts and suggestions.
