Educators and families: Close this education gap and ensure better student learning

Group 2248

New research finds a gap between the information educators and families need from one another to build strong school-family connections — a critical finding since family engagement translates to better learning outcomes for students. 

 

 

In short, families want more academic progress and behavior updates from educators, while educators want more information on student social-emotional wellness and family circumstances from families. 

What can teachers do to close this education gap? Share (and help families share) this information to close this gap and ensure more student learning.
