The best teacher? You!

Did you know that research shows parents are the biggest factor in their children's educational success? In just three small steps, you can have a huge impact on your child's future.

•Reading or speaking to your child — even 20 minutes a day — can improve academic skills and raise IQ scores.

•Studies have shown that parents who volunteer at their child's school are more likely to have successful kids.

•Research has found that parents partnering with teachers — helping with homework and attending parent-teacher conferences — leads to better prepared students.
