I recently had the honor and pleasure to attend the Scholastic Literacy Summit. Karen Mapp, Author and Harvard Professor, was one of the keynote speakers and she emphasized that no longer can we allow generational disrespect of our families to prevail, instead there must be an enduring partnership where parents learn how to support their student's mastery and growth. The data she expressed on attendance and academic performance was compelling. What resonated and stayed with me after the presentation was that family engagement is not an add-on but a key factor in student learning. Dynamic Leaders, How do you engage your families?
