As with many of the posts on this blog, today's brief topic has been inspired by a conversation that occurred on Twitter today. Without going into huge detail (because it's not really necessary), the main gyst was the communication between teachers and parents.
Such a hot topic these days. Who's responsibility is it? Should teachers post general information somewhere accessible and then expect parents to check on a regular basis? Are report cards coupled with conferences enough? At what point should parents start communicating with their children?
Let's face it, with class sizes at capacity, most teachers simply do not have enough hours in the day to keep each and every parent posted on their individual child's progess on a daily or weekly basis.
And so I ask you...what strategies do you use? Take my poll now:
