Did you realise that parental involvement in a child's learning is more powerful than family background, size of family or level of parental education and, in the primary years, has more impact on attainment than the school itself? Shouldn't we be shaping our education and social policy to build on this?
The Campaign for Learning works to build motivation, create opportunities and provide support for learning in families. Key elements of our work in this area are national Family Learning Festival, policy and advocacy, publications, events, projects and research. In 2001 in a partnership venture with ContinYou and NIACE we set up the National Family Learning Network, which supports thousands of Family Learning practitioners all year round.
