What Are Parents Thinking? is a new article in ASCD Educational Leadership by a “head of school” (I assume that’s another name for principal).
He talks about some of his school’s parent involvement/engagement efforts, particularly using online surveys. I’m not a big fan of surveys — in my community organizing career, we always felt that there only good use was as an excuse to initiate a face to face conversation. So, as long as you use them with that in mind, it can be somewhat useful.
