Parents asked educators about their children’s learning. Frustrated when they were ignored, they asked politicians to put pressure on the educators. They were then surprised when the politicians provided personal advice about the optimal way to nurture learning. They were even more surprised when the politicans prescribed changes to instruction, curriculum, textbooks, technology, school safety, teacher retention, student behavior, school funding, and even the menus for school cafeterias. More frustrated than ever, they intensified their barrage of common sense questions.
A book that gives honest answers to honest questions that parents are asking about their children's education is sorely needed. Sometimes it is difficult for parents to negotiate through the language of education without the help of others. This book provides that help. The activities provide real-life examples of a wide range of issues, including smartphones, grading, and texting. This book is a wonderful resource for parents and college students learning to become teachers.
