Parents as Equal Partners

The purpose of this page is to get you thinking and acting as a partner in your children’s education. By equal we mean equal to the teacher(s), counselor(s), principal(s), and anyone else to whom you have erroneously relinquished your power. They don’t want your power. They want your participation. Just like you must be careful about whom you give your power to, they must be careful what they ask for.

The literature provided here offers a balance of ideas about what it means for schools/districts to have parents as equal partners. The links take you to a variety of websites from schools/districts, parent advocacy groups, and other education-focused organizations. Please contact us if there’s something you’d like for us to find and add to this page.
