Parent engagement is of the utmost importance, when it comes to teaching a child. The best way to view parent engagement is to think of it as a partnership. When parents have up to date information on their child’s progress in school, they are more likely to respond and get involved. Teachers and parents have one goal: to ensure that the child succeeds in all areas.
