“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela.
True. We all know Education is a ladder to climb out of poverty and school is the place where children are educated. Parents’ participation and interest in school education leads children to a bright future. A robust and constant communication is required between school and parents to enrich the child’s learning.
School can communicate with parents about different aspects to ensure children avail most out of the education system, like
- By sending student performance reports
- By conducting parents teacher meetings
- By releasing newsletters
- By sending personalized letters
- Having personal appointments with parents
Even though having many communication channels, school and parents communication lack because of various reasons. Technology plays an important role here.
