Parent Power School- Sat, January 11, 2014
The first Parent Power School of 2014 was focused on how parents can advocate in Albany for the crucial funds that NYC schools need. Participants learned about Mayor de Blasio’s effort to pass a tax on the wealthy to fund full-day pre-k for all four year olds and afterschool programs for all middle school students; as well as the statewide campaign to add $1.9 billion to the state budget for schools. Parents practiced lobbying legislators and telling the stories about their children that can push elected officials and policymakers to do the right thing. Over 45 people attended the session, which was held at the Transit Workers Union and conducted in Spanish and English, with convenient childcare in the next room.
