Parents Day 2014

On Parents Day, schools across the nation invite parents into the classroom for a hands-on experience of what the day is like for their child. We celebrated parents with NEA VP Becky Pringle at the Bailey STEM Magnet Middle Prep in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ongoing research shows that parental involvement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores parents' confidence in their children's education. For information on parental involvement, visit
