Kids perform better when parents get involved
Children spend five times as much time outside the classroom as they do in school.
With all this time away from teachers, it’s important for parents to support their children’s learning.
In fact, children whose parents are involved with them in family literacy activities score 10 points higher on standardized reading tests, according to the National Center for Family Literacy.

Students’ reading levels may influence a lot more than the ability to sit down and read a book.
The level at which a student reads can foretell several aspects of future success.
Recent studies have shown the reading skills developed by third grade may indicate students’ likelihood of graduating high school.
Tech tips to prepare for school
Preparing children for a new school year is no longer just about stocking up on pencils and notebooks.
The face of education is changing, and a well-equipped student should know how to use new technology to personalize the learning experience and succeed in school.
