Bureau Says Better Class Size Coming and Making Education Your Business
posted by Karen Quinn, The Testing Mom - October 30th, 2013
Testing Mom makes it our business for you to be a better parent! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the student-teacher ratio is set to decline in the coming decade. This is great news for parents who have been fighting for years for a better ratio of teachers to students. But if your child is in school now, you can’t wait for the Bureau statistics – and the business of your life is making sure that your little one gets a better education than the norm. We at TestingMom.com share that goal.
That’s why it’s important for you to work with your child at home. We at Testing Mom hear from many parents who complain that their child isn’t learning his or her ABC’s fast enough. These parents think that since the teacher’s business is instilling knowledge in their children, the fault lies with the teacher. But we usually advise these parents to forgo the complaints and instead take matters into their own hands. If the aforementioned Bureau statistics show anything, it’s that teachers today have their hands full.
Testing Mom believes that an easy way for parents to ensure that their children have a better grasp of the ABC’s is to repeat each letter for their child. Putting the content into a song is a good way to do this. So sing the ABC’s but repeat each letter. Go through it with your child – repeat AAA, BBB, CCC until your child begins to complain that she’s tired. This is a fun way to instill knowledge in your child, rather than relying on the sometimes business like approach of traditional homework. This is also a better way to operate than simply complaining to the teacher that your child isn’t doing better.
The Bureau statistics are promising for the next generation, but for parents who make it their business to ensure that their child does better in school, practice at home is a great way to go! And Testing Mom will be with you every step of the way.
