Parental involvement is the key ingredient to developing and maintaining good rapport within your child’s academic endeavors. As parents, being involved can be a balancing act, because voicing too many opinions can be seen as overbearing. Yet, avoiding voicing your desires or opinions can be a detriment to the needs of your child. We must remember that teachers are people too. They have feelings, emotions, and personal needs, thus it is important to show your child’s teachers respect and dignity.
In many circumstances teachers are being overworked, underpaid, and overburdened by their classroom sizes. Schools are being forced to cut costs and reduce their financial obligations. The financial burdens play a role in the lives of the parents, teachers, school administrations, and the individual student.
