Rules and Procedures
Children take to school the lessons they learn at home, so excellence in education is partly in your hands. Since you are your childs first and most influential teacher, his or her ideas about education and its significance begins with you, the parent. Your children learn from you whether or not to value education and whether or not to respect achievement, intelligence and learning. These basic lessons continually influence how students approach their school work.
