Today, the Learning First Alliance, a partnership of 17 national education associations representing over ten million parents, educators and policymakers, released a statement calling for the Obama Administration to make family engagement a higher priority in its education plans.
You can read the statement at the Public School Insights blog. Here are a couple of lines from it:
“The Elementary and Secondary Education Act should make family engagement a stronger priority.”
“The President’s blueprint for ESEA reauthorization contains only glancing references to the importance of parents and lacks a compelling vision for how the federal government can support family engagement.”
