Why do families disengage from school
Effective communication between families and schools is essential for student success. However, some families may disengage from school for various reasons, including language barriers, cultural differences, and negative past experiences. In this blog post, we will discuss why some families disengage from school and how Klassly+Klassboard can help teachers and school administrators fix this issue.
Why Some Families Disengage from School
Language barriers can be a significant barrier to communication between families and schools. When families are unable to communicate effectively with their children's teachers, they may feel disconnected from the school community. Additionally, language barriers can make it difficult for families to understand important announcements, academic progress reports, and other school-related information.
Cultural differences can also be a barrier to communication between families and schools. Families may come from different cultural backgrounds with different expectations and values regarding education. These differences can result in misunderstandings and miscommunications that can lead to disengagement.
Negative Past Experiences
Negative past experiences with schools can also contribute to disengagement. Families who have had negative experiences with schools in the past may be reluctant to engage with their children's current school. Additionally, families who have experienced discrimination or bias may be hesitant to engage with schools that they perceive as unwelcoming.
