Questions Parents Ask about Schools.
National Opinion Research Center, Chicago, IL.
This guide presents questions that parents frequently ask about their children's school, along with answers to those questions. The questions and answers were prepared based on the results of studies conducted by the Partnership for Family Involvement in Education, the U.S. Department of Education, the GTE Foundation, and by the National Center for Education Statistics. Questions address topics of: (1) starting school (What expectations will the teacher have for my child?); (2) schoolwork (How can I get information about my child's school performance? What can I do to foster reading? What can I do to help my child's success in school?); (3) homework (How much homework should my child have? How can I help my child with homework?); (4) career preparation (How can I help my child make a successful transition from school to the university or to work? What classes should my child take in secondary school in order to be able to go to the university?); (5) safety (What can I do so that my child is safe and doesn't use drugs?); and (6) family expectations (What can I do so that school personnel know my family's hopes, dreams, and values? In what way can I be involved in my child's school?). (BC)
