Parent Empowerment Key to Education Reform, say Cortez and Eyoel

Posted by Admin on May 11, 2017 3:42:31 PM


Parent empowerment is critical to the success of education reform. Check out this new article on the topic in The 74 Million by New Profit's Alex Cortez and Yordanos Eyoel, who lead our Reimagine School Systems Fund.


"All communities care equally about the education and future of their children. But caring is not the same as power. Most families in underserved communities do not have the economic power to move to better school systems, nor do they realize they have political power to influence change in the local school systems failing them."


The article features field and parent stories from GO Public Schools West Contra Costa, Innovate Public Schools, Families Empowered, The Education Trust, Flamboyan Foundation DC, EdNavigator, KIPP Foundation, Rocketship Education, Students For Education Reform, Stand for Children Massachusetts, RISE Colorado, and FaithActs for Education.

I love conferences. Over the course of my teens and 20s I’ve managed to make my way to plenty a convening. Attending conferences open us up to a world of possibilities! We meet new faces from different places, all with an eagerness to learn and grow together. Plus, you’re doing work without being at the office, and who doesn’t love a day away from the office every now and then?

Before the Gathering, I had only heard things from senior leaders at my job and google, of course. I had no idea what to expect. I knew two things: I knew New Profit was an amazing organization that I followed intensely in my work, and I knew this Millennial Impact Fellowship was new. I remember taking a huge deep breath the moment my plane landed at the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and telling myself to just be myself. I was given the opportunity to come to a city and learn from people I’ve admired for years and I was hoping that I would most importantly be myself. My experience far surpassed my thoughts. I had the opportunity to have many meetings with people who work on issues that I dream of dedicating my life to and this is something that I would not have had the time to do anywhere else. By the last day, I was beyond comfortable with the entire group. I’ll forever remember telling the entire group my natural hair journey. My natural hair journey is a very emotional topic for me, as it likely is for many black women. By the last night, I knew I was surrounded by such supportive people that I was able to tell stories about subliminal racism without feeling any pushback and I will forever remember this experience at my first Gathering.

Thank you to my boss who started this incredible adventure when she forwarded the Millennial Impact Fellow application. Thank you to the people who created cell phones and accessible video apps which allowed an amateur like me to create a Youtube video. Thank you to the New Profit team who spent hours reviewing applications and extended an invitation. Thank you to my school administrators who were excited that I was selected and helped accommodate my absence. Thank you to my sister who let me crash in her college dorm room so I could have a more affordable early morning taxi ride to the airport. Thank you to Southwest for one of the most fun plane trips I have ever had as we celebrated our pilot’s last flight before retirement and Mardi Gras in the airport.
