Why I Wrote This Book ...

Author Box - Don Draayer“One of my foremost conclusions after 50-plus years in the saddle is that parental responsibilities for education determine greatly the level of student academic achievement. … So I had two purposes — to give school administrators an inexpensive resource for parental audiences about the powerful home role and to identify steps parents can take to reinforce best practices.”

--Don Draayer, 1990 National Superintendent of the Year in Minnetonka, Minn. (and AASA member since 1966) on authoring Powerful Potential of Parent(s): A Child’s First, Best and Only Lifelong Teacher (AuthorHouse, 2014)
