Once in awhile we hear that the parents who never show up for anything, including parent-teacher conferences, will show up for class plays.
What's your experience been?
We're trying to show school districts the advantages of plays, and if the "parents show up" piece is true, then we'll need quotes to back it up.
And if these "school-phobic" parents DO come to the child's play, is there any advantage to you? Once they've been into your classroom, are you able to establish more of a relationship with them?
We'd love to hear your experiences with this! Please post a comment.
