Academic Development Institute

The Academic Institute administers (at least, that’s what I think is the correct term to describe it) a number of parent/school activities and projects, including two which I’ve already posted about in this blog — and the School Community Journal.

The Des Moines Register just published an article about their work in East St. Louis titled Involvement plans pay off in test scores.

I can’t speak to the substance of what they’ve done, but I was impressed that, at least based on the what the article says, they definitely began by listening to what parents wanted.
