Reaching Out To African American Parents In An Urban Community: A Community-University Partnership
Actively involving African American parents in their children's education remains one of educators' greatest challenges. The authors, representing a metropolitan university, developed and implemented parent leadership training (PLT) to assist African American parents in rediscovering their leadership skills to help their children succeed in school. This article describes the impact of PLT on these African American parents in an urban community. Quantitative and qualitative data collected provided evidence that PLT affected participants on four levels: personal, family, school, and community.
