When asked to be a contributor to Maya’s Showcase I was honored, excited, and determined. By any means necessary to advocate for our children is vital to educate, grow, and transform our communities. I know that many people are and should be concerned about their children and what the future holds for them in a world that is in constant turmoil. Education is foundational to begin this transformation.
How important is it that parents are involved in their child’s academic process? School is only a fraction of the problem when it comes to student outcomes. The National Association of Education confirms parental, family, community groups, and schools are definitive to a successful academic experience, resulting in higher levels of performance including; test scores, behavior, and post secondary achievements. With the unflappable gap within the social classes many students are being left in the dust and the end is inevitable.
As a community what can we do to improve these outcomes? That is my incentive and I hope you will tune in as we uncover the truth behind these perpetual results.
