When we visit our doctors office we see suggestions boxes by reception. We make suggestions on everything from cleanliness to customer service. Why shouldn’t we, as parents, our children as students, or teachers as educators, make suggestions to each other? My idea is to install suggestion boxes in the classroom, one for the teachers and one for the students. Students can make suggestions on ways they could better understand the curriculum, teachers can provide suggestions on how the students can be more successful. Likewise, parents should send suggestions to the teacher on how to facilitate their understanding of the very modern (and complex) curriculum our students are presented with. Teachers can send home suggestions to the parents on how they can assist their child better at home based on their individual needs. These should be reviewed in class every Friday, and students should voice their opinion on whether or not they agree or could benefit from this suggestion. By doing this, I believe we can see better results on report cards. We shouldn’t have to wait until we receive a failing grade to notice there is a problem and to know what that problem is. Parent teachers conferences are not held often enough to keep a child from falling behind.
