I’ve previously posted about why what’s happening in St. Paul, Minnesota is a national model of parent engagement.
Check out this latest article from the Pioneer Press, titled St. Paul parents hope to keep momentum after teachers contract deal, to learn why I say that…
Here’s how the article starts:
When a teachers strike loomed last month in the St. Paul Public Schools district, parents joined forces on Facebook, peppered the school board with emails and rallied in front of district headquarters.
When the district and teachers reached a contract agreement, union leaders credited parents. The superintendent called them “amazing.”
Now, some of those parents are asking: What’s next?
I’m adding this info to The Best Reasons Why Parents Should Be Looked At As Allies & Not Targets Of Blame.
