Teachers recognize the importance of parental involvement in children's learning. If children are to learn most efficiently and effectively, the home and the school must work in conjunction with each other. No other time for parent-school involvement is more critical than the early years of a child's educational experience when the patterns and habits of literacy are evolving and developing, a fact recognized by educators and supported by the findings of various national commissions on education.
