How Parental Involvement In Child's Science Education ...

I mostly leave my children on their own to learn Math and Science. Should we expect that the onus of teaching children should be solely on teachers? I guess I am wrong. Science learning requires repetetive reinforcement of concepts and additional teaching at home will help them learn better and faster. According a Washington Post blog, a national survey released Thursday shows that big percentages of science teachers and parents believe that kids should learn science by engaging in hands-on experiments but only 22 percent of teachers feel they have the resources needed to conduct them. Harris Interactive® conducted the study online within the United States between July 22 and August 4, 2010, among 300 parents (18 and older) of children in grades K-12 and 235 K-12 science teachers (18 and older). It was done on behalf of iBIO Institute and Astellas Pharma US, Inc. The survey of science teachers and parents explored their overall attitudes on science education in the United States, including parental involvement and the role of technology. The other major findings of the survey include: • Two-thirds of parents (68 percent) say they are either involved or very involved in their child’s science education and 95 percent have done at least one science-related activity with their child.
