Education reform

Parents play a part

In her guest column, Liv Finne concludes by saying that “reforms that give most Washington parents a greater voice in their children’s education will have to wait for another day.” [“WEA blocked education reforms,” Opinion, July 16.]

Do parents realize the great voice they already have in their children’s education … at home?

Going to the library, daily reading, conversation, taking “field trips” around the city, participating in PTA activities, playing games or sports as a family, limiting TV, and using technology appropriately all promote learning.

Attitudes are learned at home, and motivated students will learn anywhere and anytime. Involved parents are key!

Theresa Anderson, Edmonds
