    • What Parents Can Do
      Pay attention to what kind of math, English, history, science, and language courses your child takes. What kind of homework and how much is involved?
      Have your child sign up for courses that require writing and analytical thinking and less multiple choice.
    • What Parents Can Do
      Have your child take four years of all core subjects in high school (math, science, English, history, and language*).
      Help your child learn note taking, study skills, and time management.
      DO NOT fix everything for them!
    • What Parents Can Do
      • Support K-12 Faculty and Staff who are trying to “do the right thing.”
      • Get knowledge and organize: be aware of the school-to-college report, the new common core, and college retention trends.
      • Encourage your child to get to know themselves as learners and pay attention to this during the college search
