Educators and Administrators, in relation to the needs of Parents of your students, four (4) questions have been posed for your consideration in today's Going Back to the Basics in Education: Educators and Administrators – Pt. 4 Consider the Needs of the Parents of Your Students by Mrs. Dorothy Barron and can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGEwe7PblCM&feature=plcp
When it comes to the education of students;
We want Parents to…
We want students to…
We want children to…
We want, we want, and we want…
but, and until you first show genuine interest in Parents of your students and their needs, what you want will continue to take a back seat as it relates to the education of your students. If a Parent and his/her child’s basic needs are lacking and not met, how do you expect to get the best of the child physically, mentally and academically?
A Suggestion to School Administrators & PTA/PTOs – sometime it is easy to overlook basic unmet needs of many students and their Parents. A good joint project between the school and PTA/PTO would be to compile and keep an updated list of available sources, resources and contact information to provide to Parents of students. The list can be comprised of agency sources; academic resources, places to purchase inexpensive clothing, computers and other type equipment. You would tailor the resource list to your school’s Parents and students’ needs. Sometimes Parents are reticent about asking for assistance or certain resource information. Lack of basic and needed resources may make a difference as to whether a student succeeds or fails.
