Parent-Teacher
Conference:
YOUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
By Kathy Louis
The last parent-teacher
conferences of the year for
public school children are
scheduled for the week of
May 10. This can be a stress-
ful time for both teachers and
parents, especially if a child
is struggling and in danger of
failing. It is at this conference
that parents will be advised if
their child’s promotion to the
next grade is doubtful.
It is very important for a
parent to know their rights
and the rights of their child.
Each child who resides in
NYC, whether a student at a
public or non-public school,
has the same rights. One of
the most important of these is
the right of a parent to be ac-
tively involved in their child’s
education. Regularly sched-
uled parent-teacher confer-
ences are the opportunity
for parents to not only learn
more about their child’s ac-
ademic progress, but also to
communicate with teachers
any concerns they have.
When getting ready for the
conference, be prepared to
listen as well as question the
teacher. A parent knows their
child better than anyone else.
However, for a huge portion
of each school day, the teach-
er is in a position to observe
children in an environment
that parents rarely see.
In the accompanying chart
there is a sampling of possible
questions a parent might ask
to gain a better understand-
ing of their child’s education-
al and social progress. This
