A Senate review: 02.22.11

(Continued)

As you can see, our teachers have a lot of obstacles that are hard to overcome.  They can be the most dedicated, well-educated teacher, but if their students don’t have the support system at home, more than likely that child won’t be successful in school.  As a government, we can’t legislate parenting.  But if we want to improve our test scores, it starts at home.  As citizens we have to encourage and help those parents or guardians who may be struggling in some way and help encourage them to be more active in their children’s education. 

To contact me at the Capitol, pleasewrite to Senator Earl Garrison, State Capitol, 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd. Room 514A, Oklahoma City, OK, 73105, or call (405) 521-5533.  You can also email me at garrison@oksenate.gov
