Engaging Families In School By Valuing Their Dreams is a neat story of parents in a South African school working together to create a quilt.
Here’s a quote from the story:
“How many families in our schools have dreams no one is asking about? How many are eager to help their children reach those dreams, but they don’t know what to do? We need family engagement outreach strategies that respect their personal experiences, their culture, their knowledge. Then we can build true partnerships with families that help out students be successful and our schools thrive.”
