Numerous evidence exists linking the influence of both home and school on children’s learning and wellbeing. The connection between teachers and parents is one way to ensure children are able to transition between these two critical contexts of their early development. However, research indicates that families of color, families whose first language is not English, and those living in challenging circumstances report fewer close relationships with their child’s teacher compared to White, monolingual English-speaking, and higher income families. A child’s race, place, class, and language should not be a barrier to home-school partnership which strengthen children’s learning and wellbeing. In this session, we will examine the potential barriers between home and school, and ways to strengthen these relationships.
Advancing equity means looking for opportunities to ensure equitable access and experiences in the learning environment and providing opportunities for family engagement and leadership. Join us to:
- Understand the importance of the parent-teacher relationship for children’s learning and wellbeing.
- Examine opportunities to strengthen the home-school connection through parent-teacher relationship
- Identify how to create spaces and process to strengthen family engagement and leadership
All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
