Public Agenda

Recommendations: Ready, Willing and Able?


Schools seeking to boost parental involvement in a meaningful way must tailor their approaches to match the diverse needs, priorities and capacities of different parents. Public Agenda developed the following series of recommendations to help education leaders successfully engage all parents in school improvement. These recommendations are based on the survey research for "Ready, Willing and Able?," on subsequent focus groups with Kansas City region parents, and on our deep experience in stakeholder engagement in K-12 education.
