The estrangement of parents has created a crisis that adversely affects the performance of American students and the relationship of families to schools and school teachers. This book says, “Enough Iz Enough!” It shows how teachers and parents can and should unify to bring about change to fulfill the mission of public schools.
This book describes how the relationship of parents and families with teachers and schools can support a critical need to improve student achievement. It suggests ways for a school to adapt instructional protocol to meet common core testing standards, without changing current course content and teaching methods. Strategies are given to help ensure that students will see school as a fun and enjoyable learning experience. This is particularly important in the early grades. Enough Iz Enough makes it clear that teachers and parents must work together to create partnerships that support student achievement. The book admirably challenges current assumptions, methods, and expectations for parent-teacher relationships and offers ways to improve these relationships. Its pretext is:
The love of parents can be second to none
They will help teachers get the job done.
It may be tough, it may be rough.
They must come together.
