Family Engagement Reframing Institutes

New research shows that many people believe that family engagement depends on how much the adults in a child’s life – especially parents and teachers – “care.” This leads to a common myth/misconception that lower-income families do not engage because they do not value education. Rooted in bias, these misunderstandings create big problems for advocates who are trying to gain support for well-structured family engagement programs and strategic policies that have the potential to advance equity in our education system, and ultimately close the achievement gap. What stands between current public thinking and widespread adoption of family and community engagement as a core educational strategy is better communication. Join us for this interactive training institute where you will learn new strategies to gain support for your family engagement programs and policies, and ultimately shift the conversation from family and community engagement being “nice to have” to being a “must have.”
