The Boston Globe ran an article today on a parent involvement effort begun by the Boston schools.
It appears like a typical “Parent University” program that a lot of schools have begun to teach parents about how schools work. However, the article did mention one other focus:
“Parent University will also help parents write résumés and develop career goals.”
The article also mentioned a nearby similar project also provides information on health care.
So, perhaps they understand — at least a little bit — that they need to respond to parent self-interests and not just act out of the school’s self-interests.
