This article details the use of an assessment tool entitled, the parent journal. The parent journal is a response to a reading writing exercise in which the students respond in school then bring the journal home for their parents to either respond to the student's writing or craft their own response to the topic. I would then respond to each of the journals, creating a circle of communication. Over the four years the parent journal has been in place, parents have been much more involved with their child's education and subsequently almost all of the students' academic performances dramatically increased.

Do parents have a constitutional right to be physically present at school with their children? A federal court in Texas says no.

Children attend school about seven hours per day for approximately 180 days a year, which leaves the majority of their time to be spent with their most influential teacher, their family. Intellectual stimulation and experiences outside of school have as much or more to do with achievement, readiness, and success than that which occurs in school. In spite of this understanding, almost all resources, effort, professional development, and funding are allocated to influence what happens at school. What if we could create a home-school academic support structure that allowed parents to significantly influence student learning and achievement?
