Parents want to know exactly how their children are going at school both behaviourally and academically.
Parent often express frustration that they cannot work out if their children are meeting academic standards as there can appear to be no clear benchmarking. Not like the ‘old days’ when it was clear where a student stood in relation to his peers.
Teachers, however, do have a very good idea of how each student is learning and achieving in relation to expectations for their year level. So what to ask about at the parent teacher interview if you are still unsure of your child’s success or therwise!!
