Knowing that parents do not have much free time, Tovi C. Scruggs wrote this guide in a way that is purposefully succinct. Parent Champion is designed to motivate and educate parents to be their very best as school-partners. Parents will be inspired to analyze, reflect, and take action in regards to how they co-educate their children by partnering with their child’s school. With practical strategies and tools, Parent Champion allows parents to take action immediately. As parents, you are the best champions for your child’s success. Being a Parent Champion means prioritizing (making the choice to give highest importance to) hands-on time and strategies for your child and their education. As a parent, when you prioritize time invested in education, you are modeling your values that education is important and, therefore, championing your child’s academic and life success.
In addition, this guide is a must-have for parent organizations and schools everywhere to lead their parents to be more actively and purposefully involved in schools so families can assist educators in the paramount work that cannot be done alone: closing the achievement gap. For over 50 years, urban youth and youth of color have been at a significant disadvantage in our country’s educational system, with low literacy rates, poor high school graduation rates, and even worse college-going and completion rates. Our schools consistently try to educate our children without significant engagement from parents – and that’s a misstep. If we are going to change the trajectory of success in our schools, we must bring parents into the equation more actively and intentionally.
This guide is a positive shift in the trajectory.
The Parent Champion is an empowerment model of support that can be implemented immediately to increase parent engagement and student success. The focus is to present solid strategies, tools, and supports to empower parents to best serve their children to survive, thrive, and achieve in our educational systems.
The Parent Champion book will:
- Inspire parents to be better partners with teachers & the school
- Empower parents with tools to support our child’s academic success
- Educate parents on how to create a “college-going” attitude at home
- Create peace in your home from a shared set of expectations about school and clear strategies of how to reach those expectations
It is critical that we heed the teachings of the Parent Champion, and I encourage parents to unify to demand higher standards and results from our schools, participate more fully in the realization of those expectations, serve as contributing authors of the agendas in our schools, and take more definitive action in our homes. Parent Champion shares important aspects of exactly how you can do that.– Tovi C. Scruggs
