Pathways to Access
One of the keys to achieving high school graduation and pursuing higher education is family involvement. However, language, cultural, and economic barriers can make being involved in children’s education more difficult. Parents who do not speak English may feel uncomfortable getting involved with their children’s schools or have trouble communicating with teachers. Parents may also be unfamiliar with the U.S. school system and lack the necessary resources to help their children navigate through school. Furthermore, strict work schedules can make things like attending school events and helping children with homework nearly impossible. Despite the barriers, high school graduation and higher education are possible!
