Schools and Families play very important roles in a child’s overall learning and development, which is why it is imperative that both schools and parents form partnerships to better support students. Joyce Epstein stated in the School and Family Partnerships Report that, “when schools and families work in partnership, students hear that school is important from their parents and teachers and perceive that caring people in both environments are investing and coordinating time and resources to help them succeed.” When families get involved, research shows that there are numerous benefits to children, their parents and their school.
