Video: Innovation In Involving Parents In School Life - Meet the People At ABC Unified School District
This 15 minute, professionally made video from The Teaching Company is both inspiring and positive as it explains the program and process in place at the ABC United School District.
These days, schools have to deal with two parent issues: difficult and demanding parents, and parents who simply won't get involved in their children's schools. This video looks at the latter, and portrays a success story of how one district set up a program to make parents partners in the school.
The production quality is excellent, so it's easy to put aside the 15 minutes to see what can be accomplished in building bridges with families and schools. Recommended for teachers, but even more valuable for school principals, superintendents, and school board officials looking to create a similar relationship with the community.
