Has the Internet Made Parent-Teacher Communication More or Less Effective?

parent teacherOn our November edition, the Voices of Michigan Education tackles an issue that may be one of the most important during the school year, not just for teachers, but parents. Communication.

It’s always interesting to hear the varying opinions on school communication between parents and teachers from both perspectives as many times those viewpoints differ greatly. And with the increased use of the web, has this access to a child’s weekly assignments and instant e-mail communication between parents and teachers made the process more or less effective?

We’ll be talking to a number of people with some keen insight into this issue, including  teachers from Ann Arbor and Farmington Hills, an assistant principal from Walled Lake, a parent from Grosse Ile and the President of the National PTA.

Join host Mark Gilman for a lively discussion on parent-teacher communication, Tuesday, November 10 at 7 p.m. on Newstalk 760 WJR in Detroit and across the state on Saturday, November 14 (see station list in the right column of this blog).
