Parent Involvement Advocate To Meet Obama At White House Today

Myrdin Thompson, who has written some posts elsewhere that I’ve highlighted here on this blog, will be recognized at The White House today for her work in promoting parent involvement.

She’s quoted as saying:

“I would say to the President, help me in my work so that more families are involved in their child’s educational experience in order to create stronger communities of learning and excellence for all students,” she said in an email Wednesday. “All parents and families have something to contribute, we just have to be willing to acknowledge that and work towards creating better partnerships so that all children succeed.”
