Toward Skilled Parenting & Transformed Schools Inside a National Movement for Excellence With Equity

Abstract

"A movement for excellence with equity should aspire to high quality learning opportunities for children and adults alike." ...In evaluations of school readiness that control statistically for parenting differences, racial and ethnic gaps close by 25-to-50 percent. Successful interventions can alter parenting behavior to improve school readiness, especially among low-income households. ..."Transformative, district-level reform may be the only way to make progress at the scale the nation needs. To date, most districts - city, suburban and rural - are only steps from the starting line, with some standing behind it."
