Getting Parents Involved in Schooling Studies show -- and common sense tells us -- that kids learn better when their parents are engaged and involved. But how can that parental engagement be encouraged? As we found out in a Plain Dealer series last fall, plenty of encouragement is going on and it’s bearing fruit. Join us for the encore presentation of a discussion first aired in November, 2012. That's Thursday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
