It’s no secret that parents have the power to transform educational opportunity in our country. Which is why their voice is so vital.
On April 8, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will be taking to Twitter to gain additional feedback from parents and educators on community and parent engagement best practices during the weekly #PTchat. The chat will coincide with the National Family Engagement Conference in Cincinnati, which aims to bring together educators and community activists to raise awareness of community involvement in schools.
Duncan will moderate the Twitter chat and share information about recently released family and community engagement resources from the Department of Education.
