Will Home Visits Build Better Relationships With Teachers And Students?
The city of Duluth and the American Federation of Teachers has started a Parent Teacher Home Visit Initiative to help build better relationships with teachers and students, all while getting families involved. Will this initiative make a big impact?
The AFT has been set up for fairness, democracy, economic opportunity, and high-quality public education, healthcare and public services for students, their families and the communities. Recently the initiative has been started in Duluth.
I absolutely love this idea. I think it will be a great way for parents to be more involved and see their child's teacher as a person and not just an authority figure. Plus, it give the kid and teacher more time to get to know each other rather than in a classroom setting.
Check out the video above and let me know in the comments if you think it's a good idea and if it will make a big impact or not.
