PURE offers support to parents
Thank you for your excellent issue on parent involvement (School Reform: What Matters Most, March 1998). PURE agrees that much work needs to be done to make parents true partners in education.
Most local school council members are aware of PURE’s work providing direct support for parents in the Chicago Public Schools. PURE offers a variety of free parent workshops, including parents’ rights, planning for parent involvement and father-to-father sessions, as well as special workshops for pre-school parents that are presented in cooperation with the Chicago Public Schools pre-kindergarten staff.
People who would like more information or to arrange for a PURE workshop at their school can call us at (312) 461-1994.
