Falls Church, VA, June 18, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Ralph Perrino was interviewed by Miriam Gennari on Arlington Weekly News’ “SustainableScoop” on June 3. Dr. Perrino was queried on a wide range of issues in education. Among them were technological change and its impact on the tutoring process; the importance of recognizing that the fundamentals of education will always apply, regardless of changing technologies; the process by which Northern Virginia Tutoring Service selects its tutoring staff; and, the critical importance of taking a proactive approach to tutoring, rather than a reactive approach. This, according to Dr. Perrino, is particularly critical during the summer months when students and parents tend to retreat from the education process. That approach, in the words of Dr. Perrino is “the wrong approach.” He stated, “Parents who take a proactive approach and students who take a proactive approach are far better off.”
Dr. Perrino pointed out that many of the issues facing the field of education today are contained and analyzed in his book, “Issues, Strategies, and Concerns in Education Today: A Collection of Essays” and he encouraged listeners to read it.
