Communicating regularly with teachers is the best way for the parents to be involved in education. Consider the teacher as a partner in managing the education of our child. With proper guidance and support from the teacher, the parents may become more involved in home learning activities and find themselves with opportunities to teach, to be models for their children and to guide them.
Sometimes, schools demand children to practice reading at home with parents, and then children gain more information. Some parents read out stories and books for their children and spend time with them, which contributes a lot to their achievement.
