Town Meeting on Education

Posted by on December 30, 2005

Because it?s about helping our children do better in school.

Children do better in school when their parents are actively engaged in their education. But what does ?active engagement? mean?

Join us to learn about the many ways Philadelphia parents are getting involved in their children?s education ? at home, in school and in the community. Hear what new research says. Learn what the School District of Philadelphia, and other public and private schools, are doing. Share what works for you and your child.
