    • REVIEW Involve: Parents When schoolwork involves parents, students learn more. ... Schools should build strong alliances with parents and welcome their active participation in the classroom. Educators should inform parents of the school's educational goals, the importance of high expectations for each child, and ways of assisting with homework and classroom lessons. - Edutopia
    • REVIEW Adopt: Technology The intelligent use of technology can transform and improve almost every aspect of school, modernizing the nature of curriculum, student assignments, parental connections, and administration. Online curricula now include lesson plans, simulations, and demonstrations for classroom use and review. ... Schools can reduce administrative costs by using technology tools, as other fields have done, and provide more funds for the classroom. - Edutopia
