Parents as Leaders in Education – Podcast Episode 72 | Classnotes Podcast 72
Classnotes Podcast (May 14, 2010) The fourth dimension of IDRA’s model for parent leadership in education focuses on parents as leaders and trainers of other parents. The innovation is that rather than expecting parents to be passive receivers of information from the school, they demonstrate their own expertise and value, share it with their peers and work together to advocate for all children in the school.
Frances Guzmán, M.Ed., an IDRA education associate, shares examples of this parent leadership in action from IDRA’s recent Annual IDRA La Semana del Niño Parent Institute, where groups of parents from several school districts led sessions for each other on multiple education topics.
