What can schools do to get parents more involved?
It seems like the kids schools are always looking for volunteers. I don't mind volunteering and have done it quite a bit. I also know that it isn't for everyone, which is fine!
I asked a question a few days ago about what is the biggest problem that public schools face. Many people said parental involvement, I agree with this. If you had to come up with the solution to this problem, what would you propose? Mandatory class room involvement? Incentive in some way to participate? Is there a workable solution to that issue?
If the classroom is struggling and the teacher NEEDS help then I think the best way to get it is to hold a meeting or something. That way the teacher can explain what is and isn't working and how parents can help. I think most parents would be willing to help if there's a problem.
