Nueva GUÍA para Apoyar Padres lograr el éxito en la educación de sus hijos Featured

Hoy se publica una nueva guía para padres que las familias podrán utilizar para apoyar el éxito de sus hijos en la escuela. El Departamento de Educación de EE.UU., en colaboración con otras organizaciones claves, publica una guía que los padres podrán usar para ayudar a sus hijos en la escuela

Mientras los 54 millones de estudiantes del país se preparan pararegresar a la escuela este otoño, el Departamento de Educación de EE.UU., America Achieves, elConsejo Nacional de La Raza (NCLR), la National PTA y el United Negro College Fund (UNCF), publicaron hoy una guía para los padres (la Guía) coninformación y recursos que los padres y cuidadores pueden utilizar para ayudar a que los niños reciban la educación que se merecenLa Guía sugiere preguntas importantes que los padres deben hacerconsejos para el éxito educativo y recursos para obtener más información.

“Nunca he conocido a un padre que no quiera lo mejor para sus hijos. Sin embargo, puede ser difícil para las familias saber cómo apoyar la educación de sus hijos. Una buena manera de comenzar es que los padres se relacionen con los educadores. Esta herramienta sugiere a las familias preguntas que pueden hacer sobre cómo colaborar con los educadores y así asegurar que las escuelas proporcionen a todos los estudiantes una educación que los preparare para los estudios universitarios y el trabajo”, dijo Arne Duncan, secretario de Educación de EE.UU.

 

La Guía complementa el conjunto de derechos que el Departamento publicó recientemente, donde se expone lo que las familias deben esperar de la educación de sus hijos. Los derechos se aplican a toda la trayectoria educativa y cubren todos los niveles educativos, incluido el acceso a una educación preescolar de calidad;escuelas primarias y secundarias seguras, con buenos recursos y normas altas de rendimiento para los estudiantes; y acceso a una educación universitaria de calidad a un precio asequible.

 

La Guía y el conjunto de derechos se basan en la labor del Departamento de Educación para involucrar a los padres en la creación del Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships, las herramientas que pueden ayudar a las familias y estudiantes a seleccionar las mejores escuelas para sus necesidades, los Centros de Capacitación e Información y los Centros de Recursos.

“Es indispensable que todos los niños estudien en escuelas segura, saludables, solidarias, y con los recursos necesarios para que puedan desarrollarse y aprender. Para garantizar una educación de la más alta calidad a todos los niños, es esencial que nuestros sistemas educativos sean transparentes, que las familias participen y estén presentes, y que los educadores y padres colaboren para apoyar el éxito de los estudiantes”, dijo Laura Bay, presidenta de la National PTA. “Con alegría la National PTA colabora con el Departamento de Educación, America Achieves, el Consejo Nacional de La Raza y el United Negro College Fund en la elaboración de la Guía, para que las familias por todo el país sepan cuáles preguntas hacer, señalar recursos y otros consejos para que sus hijos reciban una educación de alta calidad que les permita alcanzar su máximo potencial”.

 

“La Guía de padres es un potente recurso que puede ayudar a medir si un niño está lo suficientemente preparado para recibir la educación de calidad que se merece”, dijo Michael L. Lomax, Ph.D., presidente de UNCF. “Es una extensión del compromiso de UNCF de fomentar los estudios universitarios entre los afroamericanos y brindarles el apoyo que necesitan para conseguir que los estudiantes asistan y se gradúen de la universidad”.

 

“Como todos los padres, los hispanos entienden la importancia de involucrare en la educación de sus hijos para que tengan éxito”, dijo Janet Murguía, presidenta de NCLR. “Por eso, en la NCLR y nuestras filiales, apoyamos la Guía, una herramienta útil para que los padres hagan las preguntas relevantes y participen plenamente en la educación de sus hijos”.

 

La Guía sugiere las siguientes preguntas básicas que los padres deben plantear a los educadores de sus hijos: 

 

Calidad: ¿Recibe mi hijo una buena educación?

 

  • ¿Me mantendrán ustedes informado regularmente sobre el progreso de mi hijo? ¿Cómo podemos colaborar si mi hijo se retrasa?
  • ¿Está mi hijo a nivel de grado y preparándose para los estudios superiores y el mundo laboral? ¿Cómo lo sabré?

 

 

Listos para el éxito: ¿Estará mi hijo preparado para triunfar en el futuro?

 

  • ¿Cómo se medirá el progreso y la capacidad de mi hijo en materias como lectura, matemática, ciencia, artes, desarrollo social y emocional, y otras actividades y materias?
  • ¿Cuánto tiempo pasará mi hijo preparándose y tomando pruebas del estado y del distrito? ¿Cómo sabré yo y el maestro de mi hijo cómo utilizar los resultados para ayudar a mi hijo a avanzar?

 

Seguros y saludables: ¿Se cuida y mantiene seguro a mi hijo en la escuela?

  • ¿Qué programas existen para que la escuela sea un entorno seguro, enriquecedor y positivo? ¿Cuáles son las políticas de la escuela sobre la disciplina y para evitar el acoso en la escuela?
  • ¿Son saludables las comidas y meriendas proporcionadas en la escuela? ¿Cuánto tiempo se dedica al recreo o el ejercicio?

 

Buenos maestros: ¿Participa y aprende mi hijo en la escuela cada día?

 

  • ¿Cómo sabré si los maestros de mi hijo son eficaces?
  • ¿Cuánto tiempo pasan los maestros colaborando entre sí?
  • ¿Qué tipo de desarrollo profesional hay para los maestros aquí?

 

Equidad y justicia: ¿Tienen mi hijo y los demás niños de la escuela o programa, la misma oportunidad de triunfar y de ser tratados justamente?

 

  • Cómo asegura la escuela que todos los estudiantes reciban un trato justo? (Por ejemplo, ¿existen diferencias en las tasas de suspensión o expulsión por raza o sexo?).
  • ¿Ofrece la escuela a todos los estudiantes acceso a las clases que necesitan para prepararse para el éxito, incluidos los estudiantes de inglés y los estudiantes con necesidades especiales (por ejemplo, Álgebra I y II, clases para dotados y talentosos, laboratorios de ciencia, clases AP o IB, arte, y música)?

 

La Guía también incluye algunas sugerencias que los maestros pueden dar a los padres sobre cómo apoyar el éxito de sus hijos en la escuela. Por ejemplo:

 

  • Establecer altas expectativas para su hijo.
  • Asegúrese de que su hijo asista a la escuela todos los días y que llegue a tiempo. No faltar a la escuela es primordial.
  • Colaborar con los maestros y hablar con ellos sobre las metas y expectativas de su hijo.
  • Hable con su niño todos los días sobre lo que él o ella hace en la escuela y sobre lo que está aprendiendo.
  • Pídale a su niño que termine las tareas y asegúrese de que las haga.
  • Asistir a las reuniones de padres y maestros.
  • Participar en eventos para las familias y en las actividades voluntarias.

 

Por último, la Guía sugiere los próximos pasos a dar si el niño no está recibiendo una buena educación y ofrece recursos adicionales. Entre los sitios en línea se encuentran: guías según la edad del estudianteinformación para comparar la escuela de su hijo con otras escuelas; organizaciones escolares para los padres;prevención del acosonutricióncuestiones de discapacidadlos problemas de los estudiantes con dominio limitado del inglés; el aprendizaje durante la primera infancia; y la falta de vivienda.

New Parent Checklist Out Today Helps Empower Families to Support Children’s Success in School

 

U.S. Department of Education Joins Key Partners to Release Parent Checklist to Help Children Thrive at School

 

 

As America’s 54 million students prepare to return to school this fall, the U.S. Department of Education, America AchievesNational Council of La Raza (NCLR)National PTA and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) released a parent checklist today with questions and resources that parents and caregivers can use to help ensure their children are getting the education they deserve. The checklist suggests key questions, tips for educational success and resources for more information.

 

“I have never met a parent who doesn’t want the best for their child. However, it can be hard for families to know how to support their child’s education. Engaging with their educators is a good place to start. This tool provides families with questions to ask to work with educators to ensure schools are providing all students with an education that will prepare them for college and careers,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

 

The checklist follows the set of rights that the Department recently released outlining what families should be able to expect for their children's education. The rights follow the educational journey of a student—from access to quality preschool; to engagement in safe, well-resourced elementary and secondary schools that hold all students to high standards; to access to an affordable, quality college degree.

 

The checklist and the set of rights build on the Education Department’s work to reach out to parents—from the Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships, to tools that can help families and students select the best colleges for their needs, to support of Parent Training and Information Centers and Resource Centers.

 

“It is imperative that all children have a safe, healthy, supportive and well-resourced school in which to thrive and learn. And to help ensure a world class education is provided to every child, it is essential that our education systems are transparent, families are engaged and at the table, and families and educators work together to support student success,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. “National PTA is pleased to collaborate with the Department of Education, America Achieves, National Council of La Raza and the United Negro College Fund to bring the checklist to families nationwide to empower them with questions, tips and resources to make sure their children are getting a high-quality education that enables them to reach their full potential.”

 

"The Parent Checklist is a powerful resource that can help gauge whether a child is being sufficiently prepared for the quality education they deserve," said Michael L. Lomax, Ph.D., president and CEO of UNCF. "It's an extension of UNCF's commitment to building a college-going culture within the African-American community and providing support for getting more students to and through college."

 

“Just like all Americans, Latino parents understand the importance of the need to engage in their child’s education in order for them to succeed,” said Janet Murguía, President and CEO, NCLR. “This is why NCLR and our Affiliates support the ‘Checklist,’ a tool that will help empower all parents to ask the right questions and participate fully in their children's education.”

 

The checklist suggests these “key questions” that parents should pose to their child’s educators:

Quality: Is my child getting a great education?

·         How will you keep me informed about how my child is doing on a regular basis? How can we work together if my child falls behind?

·         Is my child on grade level, and on track to be ready for college and a career? How do I know?

 

Ready for Success: Will my child be prepared to succeed in whatever comes next?

·         How will you measure my child’s progress and ability in subjects including reading, math, science, the arts, social and emotional development, and other activities?

·         How much time will my child spend preparing for and taking state and district tests? How will my child’s teacher and I know how to use the results to help my child make progress?

 

Safe and Healthy: Is my child safe and cared for at school?

·         What programs are in place to ensure that the school is a safe, nurturing and positive environment? What are the discipline and bullying policies at the school?

·         Are the meals and snacks provided healthy? How much time is there for recess and/or exercise?

 

Great Teachers: Is my child engaged and learning every day?

·         How do I know my child’s teachers are effective?

·         How much time do teachers get to collaborate with one another?

·         What kind of professional development is available to teachers here?

 

Equity and Fairness: Does my child, and every child at my child’s school or program, have the opportunity to succeed and be treated fairly?

·         How does the school make sure that all students are treated fairly? (For example, are there any differences in suspension/expulsion rates by race or gender?)

·         Does the school offer all students access to the classes they need to prepare them for success, including English language learners and students with special needs (for example, Algebra I and II, gifted and talented classes, science labs, AP or IB classes, art, music)?

 

The reference guide also includes some ways teachers suggest parents can support their children’s success in school. For example:

·         Set high expectations for your child.

·         Make sure your child is in school every day and on time. Attendance matters.

·         Work collaboratively with your child’s teachers and talk to them about goals and expectations for your child.

·         Talk to your child each day about what he or she is doing in school and discuss what he or she learned.

·         Encourage your child to complete assignments, and see that she or he finishes them.

·         Attend parent-teacher conferences.

·         Participate in family engagement and volunteer opportunities. Set high expectations for your child.

 

Lastly, the checklist suggests next steps for families to take if their child is not getting a strong education and resources for more information. Among the sites on line are: age-appropriate guides to supplement this reference guide; information on how your school compares to other schools; school-based parent organizationsbullying preventionnutrition;  disability issueslimited-English challengesearly childhood learning; and homelessness.
