Abstract:

Australian school students are quickly slipping behind their international peers. It's something that Adrian Piccoli, a former Education Minister and now Director of the UNSW Gonski Institute for Education, is determined to change. And as a parent, he knows that we all have a role to play. To do that, Australian parents need to be better informed about their children's schooling and how they can help. In 12 Ways Your Child Can Get the Best Out of School, he sets out clearly what every parent needs to know to ensure their kids have the quality education they deserve. Jargon-free and easy-to-understand, this book will empower parents with knowledge and advice on all the key issues around an Australian education in the 21st century, including:, *How to prepare your child for school, *What to look for in a school, *Your role in your child's education, *How schools work, *Understanding the curriculum, standards and data, *Focusing on progress, not just performance, *How to get the most out of parent-teacher interviews, *Homework - what's it for and how much?, *When to engage a private tutor, *What NAPLAN means and how you can use it, *Managing yours and your child's expectations and stress, *Technology and learning, *Surviving the HSC". With simple and concise advice, case studies, Dos and Don'ts and much more, this book is for every parent - private or public school - who wants to help their kids flourish and do well, and that's most of us.
