LATINX PARENTS FOR CHANGE: “Beyond Understanding the Education System”
A collaborative initiative of Working Women Community Centre (WWCC), the Mennonite New Life Centre (MNLC) and the Latin American Education Network (LAEN).
Parents from Latin American are positively disposed to participation in the school system as a vehicle to support and enhance their children’s education. However, numerous barriers continue to exist in realizing the full potential of this kind of civic engagement. These barriers are multiple and complex; over the next three years will identify these barriers and will strengthen the engagement of elementary parents from Latin America to participate in the life of their schools.
To this end, we are inviting parents of elementary school children from Latin America to be part of the community assessment we are developing as a first phase of the project by joining one of the following focus groups:
