Slightly Odd Statement on Parent Engagement From New NYC School Chancellor

Dennis Walcott has just been confirmed as New York City’s school’s chancellor. He made this statement:

“I’ve always talked about, especially in the past week, parent involvement, parent engagement, making sure that parents are totally invested in what’s happening in their child’s school,” he said.

Perhaps it was just an oddly-worded comment in the moment, but saying you’ve “always” been some way, “especially in the past week,” could leave one wondering how serious a commitment we’re talking about.

I guess we’ll see soon…..
