Parents are responsible for the education of their children and are the critical factor for making good schools. Parents have the purest motive of all stakeholders in the public education system. They seek only one result: a quality education for their children.
Informed parents are able to recognize problems. Involved parents take leadership roles in their children’s education. They work effectively to ensure quality academic programs in their neighborhood schools and to change school district policies and state laws to support classroom excellence. Informed and involved parents, working together to magnify their impact, are the key to successful education reform.
