Apparently a flyer went out to a limited number of schools inviting “All Parents/Guardians” to “a parent involvement discussion led by Dr. Christopher Span“. He is the guy that co-led the Rose & Taylor Education forum a while back. This seems like a really cool opportunity – I am wondering why it was not broadcast via KCN or on any of the school websites and why only some schools heard about it. We at Carrie Busey, who have one of the highest mobility rates and a fair number of low-SES families, did not get wind of this opportunity. Curious. Good luck finding the flyer online. 🙂
I have bugged Dr. Span several times for a report from the Rose & Taylor forum and am still waiting. I am not quite sure what the game is – Dr. Span seems to be collecting some really great community feedback, but what happens to it then? What good is the community input doing? From the community perspective, is it merely to get things off your chest?
