Fathers, grandfathers, uncles and other male role models involvement could change a child’s life
This past Monday, 100 schools across Prince George’s County scheduled fun and educational activities for male role models during the annual “Men Making a Difference Day.” Learning how to knot a necktie was one of many activities that more than 2,000 men shared with their children. This event brings fathers into classrooms to promote parental involvement in public schools.
Researchers have found that students with involved parents are more likely to earn higher grades, attend school regularly and have better social skills.
Some schools brought in motivational speakers, some hosted basketball games between fathers and sons, while others simply opened their classrooms for the men to observe while the children learned.
