No Parent Left Behind: A Guide to Working with Your Child's School
Petrosino, Pamela; Spiegel, Lisa
Rowman & Littlefield Education
The goal of an elementary school is to educate all children. However, the growing number of students per school and the increased demands placed upon teachers make this more challenging every year. An involved parent is often the difference between a child who thrives in school, and one who merely goes to school. Yet, it is nearly impossible to help your child when you don't understand everything that is happening at school. The purpose of this book is to change all of that. "No Parent Left Behind" is a guide written to inform and empower parents of elementary school children. Its easy-to-understand language makes it an indispensable tool for all parents. This book is the first of its kind to take the language of education and define all the words, phrases, and processes involved in a child's school. The chapters are separated so that parents can easily open to a specific chapter to gain insight, understanding, and learn helpful tips. Petrosino and Spiegel cover every aspect of elementary education, including how to work with your child at home, and how to prepare your infant or toddler for success in elementary school. Parents never again need to feel insecure when entering their child's school or feel unsure about what is happening at school. Now, parents finally have a manual to guide them through their child's elementary education, whether a child is a regular education, gifted or special education student. This book will teach parents how to better support their child in the classroom and at home to ensure his or her educational success.
