Duncan's Prescription for Great Schools: Dads!
Arne Duncan, US Education Secretary, was in New Hampshire this week for a town hall
on fatherhood and education:
"Duncan said fathers must move outside their comfort zones and get involved with their children, perhaps in ways they didn't interact with their own fathers.
'When fathers step up, students don't drop out. ... When fathers step up, young folks have greater dreams for themselves,' he said. 'We need to turn those TVs off at night, we need to engage with our children, we need to read to them.'"
We couldn't agree more! If you're a dad who is looking for ways to engage your school child, check out our range of resources
