Many state education agencies now have offices devoted to identifying and using OERs and other digital resources in their states.

In the elementary years, parents are usually involved with their students’ education; volunteering at school, keeping up with homework, and communicating with teachers. When students get to the middle school level, parents seem to pull back more, especially after the sixth grade year, generally being more involved when it comes to sports and/or discipline issues rather than what is taking place in the classroom.
