FAIR SPONSORED BY
Parents Challenge is dedicated to helping children escape failing schools by helping their parents exercise CHOICE. We help parents learn about what education options are available and how to pursue them.
The Parents Challenge program is built
upon four key activities:
Facilitates multi-level parental engagement in the educational process by training parents how to be better education consumers, tracking and recording children’s progress, selecting supplemental support and materials, interacting with teachers, administrators, and education boards, and understanding the broader implications, challenges, and benefits of educational reform.
Scholarships + Grants
Provide partial private school tuition funding (scholarships) for low-income families, as well as grant funds for transportation, computers, and tutoring for Parents Challenge participants opting for public schools or charters, and curricular materials for homeschoolers.
Assist with evaluation, monitoring, and improvement of academic and cognitive skills, as well as developing coping and life skills. Students and parents will be expected to record all academic grades, standardized scores and all extra-curricular activities in a student journal.
Facilitates outreach and collaboration with other service-providing organizations throughout the community, as well as with progressive school boards and other key constituencies, dedicated to broader educational improvement.
