Feedback wanted on federal education policy

e-Connections Post

The Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) has been asked by federal and state education policy makers to provide a list of local community stakeholders interested in providing feedback and input on the Every Student Succeeds Act. 

The act requires the engagement of public stakeholders, including advocates, parents and family members. Topics of discussion might include:

  • Barriers to greater participation by parents in activities (with particular attention to parents who are economically disadvantaged, are disabled, have limited English proficiency, have limited literacy, or are of any racial or ethnic minority background)
  • The needs of parents and family members to assist with the learning of their children, including engaging with school personnel and teachers
  • Strategies to support successful school and family interactions  

Interested individuals may sign up by March 6 here. SEARAC does not guarantee that those who sign up will be contacted.
