What Principals Want Parents to Know

UCLA Lab School Assistant Principal Renata Gusmão-García Williams is among the educators who share advice for parents in 11 Things the School Principal Wants You To Know.

“Elementary school is the time to build a joy of learning in children,” says Williams. “When parents and educators work together as partners, we can help children to have a better experience of school and greater opportunities to realize their potential.”
