Taylor & Francis Publishing Education is more important than ever. Yet some children – with parent and teacher blessing – write themselves off and think they are not good enough to achieve highly. The latest research shows most children can reach levels of performance at a school previously associated with only the high achieving, gifted and talented. Brains are malleable, IQ not fixed but without parental engagement in learning, many children will continue to fall short of their potential. Based on 40years of research, this book takes what is now known about how and why children succeed at school and translates this into a straightforward handbook for parents, teachers and all concerned with children’s education.
