- What subject does my student like most? Least?
- What can I do to help my student with subjects he finds difficult?
- How can I help my student study? Prepare for class? Improve his work? A good time to ask these questions is when the teacher gives you samples of your son’s or daughter’s work.
- Is my student trying as hard as he/she can?
- Does my student participate in class discussions and activities?
- Is my student in different classes or groups for different subjects? Which ones? How are the groups determined?
- How well does my student get along with others?
- Has my student missed classes?
- Have you noticed changes in the way my student acts? For example, have you noticed squinting, tiredness, or moodiness that might be a sign of physical or other problems?
- How are you measuring my student’s progress? Through tests? Portfolios? Class participation? Projects?
- What kinds of tests do you give? What do the tests show about my student’s progress? How does my student handle taking tests?

- Adequate funding: Even with the Prop 55 extension of Prop. 30 taxes, our funding is below average, and California’s schools rank in the bottom 5. LCFF improves equity, but does not address adequacy. How can we restore long-term increased stable funding for our children’s schools?
- Raising Teacher Status: In countries with high-performing schools, teachers are better trained, better paid, better supported, and better respected than in the US. How can we change the way we view the teaching profession, so that we can better recruit and retain and properly compensate our children’s teachers?
- Early Childhood Education: Santa Clara County’s Superintendent of Schools says the County Office’s work on early learning is its highest priority project. How can we improve access to high quality, affordable, early learning for allof California’s children?

Whether you are a student, educator, parent, organization or principal, you can find a way to celebrate the arts in education during National Arts in Education Week!
The arts are an essential part of a complete education, no matter if it happens in the home, school or the community. Students of all ages – from kindergarten to college to creative aging programs – benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity. Celebrating National Arts in Education Week is a way to recognize this impact and share the message with friends, family, and communities.
National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education. Passed by Congress in 2010 through House Resolution 275, the celebration is designated to bring attention to this cause for elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.
