Take part in the conversation about schools. Schools, after all, are communities within our greater communities, and need full participation of the greater communities to function effectively and efficiently. As a researcher, I can tell you that studies show the best schools are within communities that participate as equal partners in the educational system. Money has nothing to do with it–that is, richer communities per se do not do better than less wealthy communities with active involvement of parents and community residents. It’s the involvement, not the money.
If you are not already participating in the functioning of your neighborhood’s schools, get involved now. If you are already active, I salute you!
