New Education Resource for Parents

NBC News Education Nation has created a Parent Toolkit to help parents participate in their children’s academic success and personal growth. The toolkit includes:

  • Grade-by-grade academic benchmarks for pre-K through 12th grade in mathematics and English language arts,
  • Tips and resources for parents to support their children’s learning for pre-K through 12th grade,
  • A guide to parent-teacher conferences and school counselor meetings, and
  • A newsfeed with stories, blog posts, and videos from a variety of sources.

The goals of this toolkit are: 1) to establish for parents a clear understanding of what is expected of their children at each step in their academic journey, and 2) to provide a comprehensive set of tips and tools to help parents engage in and monitor their children’s academic development. NBC News enlisted a number of experts, from academics to classroom teachers to parents from across the country, to review the content. You can visit the toolkit site at
