California School Superintendent On Parent Involvement

The local newspaper in Bakersfield, CA, ran an article yesterday on California State Superintendent Jack O’Connell’s list of the top ten things parents should do to help their children succeed in schools.

Perhaps instead of telling parents what they should do, he could start urging schools to start  actually asking parents for their own ideas.  Instead of having the narrow focus on on parent involvement, what might happen if he decided to emphasize a school culture of parent engagement?
