Philadelphia “Parent University”

CNN produced this video story on “Parent University” in Philadelphia. It seems like an okay program, but it could be so much more. Elisa Gonzalez, the Parent Coordinator at our school, has, I think, developed a national model of what a “Parent University” can really become — by first asking parents what they want to learn, and then having parents take leadership in development.

I’ve previously written about Elisa’s work:
