I have a question for everyone on this forum.  How many parents on this Forum is an active member of the PTA/PTO parent group at your Elementary School? Please respond "I am" if you can.  Thanks.

We as parents need to know what is being taught, what is not being taught and how much of it is being taught in the classrooms in all subjects.  We need to ask the teachers for regular and consistent academic communications know that we have a right to know that information.  Then, we have to go home and do the rest.  To me, that's how the parent stays involved in the process.  At the end of the day, it is your child that isn't able to read before entering 1st Grade.
