Should Parents Play a Bigger Role in their Child's Science Education?
Many parents rely on our education system to provide the best science education for their child. Honestly, parents play a crucial role in determining how much science their children learn. The good news, parents don't need to have a strong background in science to help their children learn and appreciate science. Bottom line, parents don't leave it up to your child's teacher to provide the best science education. You're a big part of the equation!
