On the very first visit to our home, the teachers explained to us that home visits are a great way for teachers to learn how to connect with their students therefore improving their success in the classroom. I have found this to not only be true, but it has also been a great way for us to to stay involved in our childrens school life on a routine basis.
In response to anyone who says this is a corrupt practice, we encourage you to look up effective teaching practices and keyword home visits. Or, take a look at the links we provided below. Attempting to turn good efforts into something they are not will not work on educated people.
The links below are just two of the several education experts recommending home visits from teachers.
