Across the country, people believe education in America is in crisis, and the implications are frightening as historians have described the decline of public education as a threat to the nation’s economy and military (Williams, 2012). This study involved examination of research on teacher home visit programs. Data were collected through a mixed methodology of focus groups, an interview, and parent and student surveys. Once data were collected, they were coded and examined to discover different themes regarding teacher home visits. The themes included the following: building relationships, diversity and safety, parent involvement, and impact on the future of students. The research data revealed the importance of determining needs and studying each teacher home visit program to determine the best fit for individual school districts. Whatever program a district decides to implement, communication among teachers, administrators, and families must be ongoing in order for the program to work.
