The New York City public schools have had a long history of problems engaging parents.
The new Chancellor, however, promises to change that.
Here’s an excerpt from The New York Post’s article, New Schools Chancellor Stresses ‘Fun’ and Parent Communication:
Ms. Fariña emphasized the need to treat parents as partners, not adversaries–a frequent critique of the outgoing Bloomberg administration. She said one of her first acts as chancellor would be to immediately restructure the Department of Education’s parent engagement division, which will report directly to her come Monday.
