March Issue Brief: Family Engagement

Research consistently shows that family engagement in learning positively affects a range of student outcomes, including grades, behavior, enrollment in higher level programs, graduation, and college attendance. Families and teachers want children to succeed, and working together, they can provide the supports necessary for student success.

In this month’s issue brief, Core Education focuses on family engagement. We explore a playbook on family engagement that offers an international perspective, and ways to build trust and reciprocity as well as activate family networks to leverage untapped potential. We look at the research on the benefits of teacher visits to student homes and explore guidance for the type of stakeholder engagement (including parent engagement) required under the Every Student Succeeds Act.
