As a parent, you are your child’s greatest educational resource. Essentially, you are your child’s first teacher. As a former elementary school educator, I can tell you that NOTHING is more detrimental to your child’s learning than tension between you and your child’s teacher. The home-school connection must be strong with all parties working towards the same goal – the educational success of the child.
A+ Schools is the community advocate and leader for educational equity and excellence in Pittsburgh’s Public Schools. Its core purpose and focus is to remove any barriers to equity in our schools. A+ Schools is dedicated to educating the public, increasing awareness and engaging the community in efforts to advance change.
Join me as I speak with A+ Schools community organizer, Amie Matson, about the home-school connection and how parents and teachers can work together to ensure academic success for their children.
