Stronger Parent Involvement through Family Leadership in Education Projects – Podcast Episode 185 | Classnotes Podcast 185
Classnotes Podcast (September 19, 2018) IDRA’s Education CAFE model takes parent involvement to a whole new level. Rather than limiting parents to be audience members or school volunteers, Education CAFE members take on projects to influence policy and practice. An Education CAFE is a parent group that is rooted in a community-based organization rather than in a single school. Its sole purpose is to collaborate with schools to improve the success of students in the community.
In this episode, Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed., director of IDRA’s Texas Education CAFE Network project funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, describes this critical third component of family leadership in education projects. He shares examples of projects some parent groups have taken on and how the process begins with a review of data about their school. Aurelio is interviewed by Michelle Martínez Vega, IDRA technology coordinator.
