12 Ways Your Child Can Get The Best Out of School

A jargon-free guide to your child's education and how you can help them thrive at school

For Australian children to achieve their full potential in a rapidly changing world, they need a high-quality education. However, experts and teachers can't do it alone. In fact, all the research shows that parents and carers have a big part to play.

In 12 Ways Your Child Can Get the Best Out of School, Professor Adrian Piccoli, Director of the Gonski Institute for Education and former NSW education minister, sets out clearly what you need to know to ensure your child receives the quality education they deserve. Jargon-free and easy to understand, this book will empower you with the knowledge and advice you need to make a difference, including:

  • What to look for when choosing a school
  • What questions to ask at parent-teacher interviews
  • What is NAPLAN and does it matter
  • Homework - why, why not, and how much
  • Supporting children with special needs
  • What does the ATAR really mean
  • Setting high expectations and handling stress
  • Managing screen time and the role of technology at school.
