What Helps Students Most?

In a recent American School Board Journal article, Patte Barth, director of the Center for Public Education, reports on a new National School Boards Association study of parent involvement. Researchers found that the practices most likely to produce higher student achievement take place at home:

-    Monitoring homework;

-    Making sure children get to school;

-    Rewarding their efforts;

-    Talking up the idea of going to college.

These parent actions are linked to better attendance, grades, test scores, and preparation for college.  What great news for parents!  Just these small things help your students so much!
