Amplifying Parents as Partners
Achieve Equitable Education, Policies & Practices
In today’s educational system, diverse learners with social/emotional needs, especially those impacted by trauma from immigration, incarceration and violence, typically do not have access to equitable educational outcomes.
Many educators and administrators are not proficient in understanding, supporting, and engaging families-particularly those traditionally left behind.
Although many schools and districts have worked to improve family-school relationships, many parents feel they do not have the ability, expertise, or authority to advocate for equitable educational outcomes for their children, or to question practices and policies.
Student-centered and parent-driven, CPLAN seeks to transcend divisions: We hold district, charter, parochial, and Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) systems accountable to ensure equitable educational outcomes.
