Community comes together to find new ways to improve education
Parents, teachers and students discussed how to tackle education issues in Region Two at the Third Annual Education Forum Saturday. Students say having their parents get involved in their education is essential. Forum participants talked about using parents as a resource to help teachers deal with overcrowding. The idea, called Learning Leaders, is to have parents work with students, and teachers say they would appreciate having the help.But even though there are more than 150 schools in Region Two, educators were disappointed only a handful of parents showed up for the forum. Organizers are going to bring the issues they discussed to the superintendent and say they will follow up to make sure the improvements are made.
