Webinar: Parents as a Strategy to Increase Academic Performance
by Social Innovations Journal, Institute, and Lab
When most think of parenting, their first thoughts are typically that of changing diapers, preparing dinner or perhaps chasing a screaming child through a mall. But parenting doesn’t stop with the basic survival needs of a child, as many of us with children know, parents have a major influence, if not the biggest influence in how a child turns out. This is especially true when it comes to a child’s academic and educational experience.
Parents can be the key to turning a struggling academic experience into an exponentially successful one. However, with opportunity comes a whole new set of challenges. One recent poll conducted by Ask.com, surveyed 778 parents and found that 43% of them actually do their child’s homework.
This webinar panel discussion will bring together experts from around the country to explore how best we can maximize the impact of parents, on a child’s academic performance. Attendees can expect an insider glimpse into the innovative strategies currently being utilized, what unique challenges they face and what the future may look like for parental engagement in education.
