Parent Mindsets

To help you support your children’s learning and growth, we listen to you and parents all across the country. We ask about your worries, goals for your children, what you know a lot about, and where you want to know more. What we learn helps us improve the actionable tools and resources we develop and curate for you.

We share parents mindsets broadly, so that together, we can continue to unleash your power and potential as learning heroes.

Parents 2017: Unleashing Their Power & Potential

Parents 2017: Unleashing Their Power & Potential
When it comes to raising children, we hear two stories: an increasing anxiety about children’s social environment and emotional well-being, and confidence in academics. In fact, nine in 10 parents believe their child is at/above grade level in both reading and math. But, when we look at both state level and national student performance data, only about 1/3 are performing at grade level. Following up last year’s survey, this report reveals more about why this perception gap exists, the high aspirations you hold for your children, your deep dedication, where your confidence wanes, and the areas where you could use some support and help.

Parents 2016: Hearts & Minds of Parents in an Uncertain World

Parents 2016: Hearts & Minds of Parents in an Uncertain World
This report offers insights into the hearts and minds of America’s parents. There are deep areas of concern, including fears surrounding what they feel they cannot control, such as peer pressure, bullying, physical safety, and the Internet/social media. But much of what we heard is reassuring, especially the depth of parents’ engagement in their child’s education and emotional well-being. Most parents express high expectations for their child, take primary responsibility for their child’s success in school, and communicate frequently with their child’s teacher.

“Parents 2017: Unleashing Their Power & Potential” and “Hearts & Minds” are both nationally representative surveys of K-8 parents.
