Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Can’t We All Just Get Along? It's Back-to-school week, a time for new pencil cases, a wardrobe update and starting off on the right foot with your child's new teacher. Educators say good parental support is invaluable, and for parents, a responsive teacher can make the difference between their student's success and failure. But everyone knows those relationships can sometimes be strained. On our program we'll talk about how to make the most out of the parent teacher relationship. Join us Wednesday morning at nine on 90.3.
