Parent Forums are part of an outreach effort on the part of the National Alliance of Black School Educators and U.S. Department of Education in partnership with local school districts across the country. The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) works very closely with U.S. Department of Education in making sure that NABSE local affiliates across the country are reaching out to parents. We continue to reach out to parents, students, administrators, teachers, and community to establish stronger bonds in helping students to achieve.
Parents are encouraged to share in the responsibility of helping their children achieve. This requires parents to be knowledgeable of school issues that affect their child’s education. The Parent Forums provide training and resources to assist parents in working with their child, how to help out at their schools, what to say to their child’s teacher and school administrators, and inform them of the issues that affect their child’s education. Parents learn so much from participating in these Parent Forums in their local school districts.
