Classnotes Podcast (October 16, 2009) Schools, particularly those that serve low-income students, are required to provide information to parents about the schools’ progress. The intent is for parents to be able to use this data to hold their schools accountable and to be in dialogue with each other and with educators about what areas in their school need more attention. As IDRA prepares to release its latest study of high school attrition in Texas, Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center, talks about how parents can work together to hold their school accountable and to examine the big picture of how well their children’s school is doing for all students. Aurelio is interviewed by Christie Goodman, APR.
