Let’s Read Them a Story! The Parent Factor in Education

30 January 2013

The book from OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) entitled Let's Read Them a Story! The Parent Factor in Education not only documents PISA results and analysis, it also offers parents, educators and policy makers practical suggestions on how to improve parental involvement and describes the kinds of activities that are most strongly associated with better reading performance.

 

provides a wealth of examples of programmes that promote effective forms of parental involvement and successful partnerships between parents and schools from around the world. Most important, the report shows parents that it’s never too early – and never too late – to get involved in their child’s education.
