PARENT LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE
In keeping with our goal to support parent advocacy, the Parent leadership Institute (PLI) continued its monthly meetings with parents in Central Brooklyn. ASI wants to transform the quality and effectiveness of school-parent interactions by preparing a core group of parent leaders. This core group will conduct parent outreach using nationally recognized strategies and approaches. The major outcome of the PLI is a cadre of well-informed parent leaders who are: aware of policies, practices, legislation, and school data that affect their children’s education and life choices from infancy to postsecondary experiences; sensitive to the requisite behaviors that make school success a reality for their children; mobilized to support a network of parents from preschool through college who represent an educational corridor for information sharing and assistance; and confident, motivated, and empowered to collaborate with community-based organizations and city/state agencies to access resources and quality educational programs.
