We know that Teachers matter in the education of students and that their effect size on student achievement should be .4 every school year (Hattie, 2012). What is new though is that parents can also affect their child’s achievement. This effect has been measured as high as .74 (Jeynes, 2005). There are six effective strategies that teachers can focus on and get the message to parents that what they do really matters and has an effect. When the effect of teachers is put together with the effect of parents so much more can be achieved.
