Latest issue of the IDRA Newsletter – This month’s focus: Family Leadership in Education

“Effective family engagement is based on respect and a shared goal of academic success for every child. Effectiveness depends on the meaningful integration of community members and parents into the decision-making processes of schools.” – Dr. María “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, IDRA President and CEO

This issue of the IDRA Newsletter has stories on IDRA’s Education CAFE model (the next generation of our Comunitario model), which is a structure for families transforming schools in their communities, preventing and addressing cyberbullying, and how to use actionable education data to strengthen your school.
