Boston Schools Create Parents Education 'Boot Camp'

Ad Feedback

Doing homework after school has always been a tradition for most American children. But today, a lot of parents say helping with their child's homework is no longer an easy task.

Many educators say parents will inevitably hit a point where their kids will bring home assignments that's above their own education level. That's why Parent University was created.

Boston Public Schools and other districts across the country have introduced the university as a boot camp for parents.

Parents can brush up on their education skills in areas they might have forgotten or never been taught.

"My fourth grader is in Boston Public Schools and I need to help her learn how to do her fractions," Jill Cox said.

"What we're doing is really breaking it down and helping them understand it, helping them walk through it," a teacher said.

The program's designers hope to re-teach lessons which they say will help keep parents ahead of the class.
