I’ve written extensively about the Parent-Teacher Home Visit Project in our book, and actively worked with them. In fact, I’ll be helping with a training they’re doing later this month, and I’ll also be interviewing Carrie Rose, its Executive Director, next month for a piece that will appear in this blog.
So I was thrilled to learn that the the foundation of the National Education Association just provided sizable grants to the Columbus, Ohio and Springfield, Massachusetts school districts — in large part to expand their local home visit programs. People in those districts were trained by the Parent Teacher Home Visit Project, and leaders of efforts in those cities are quoted in my book.
Congratulations to them!
