At Revolución Educativa we believe that when families and school staff work together to form strong partnerships students have a greater chance of having an enjoyable learning experience and the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. You, as a parent, caregiver and/or mentor, have an important role to play in the education of your child…ultimately, you are your child’s first teacher and life-long advocate!
At RevEd, we understand that sometimes it can be hard to know how to best advocate for your student and how to navigate education systems. Some of us didn’t go to school in this country, so it’s natural (and common) for us to feel lost and unsure about how we can engage in our children’s educational experience. We know that your students do best when you are part of the conversation…and we know how much you care about your children and that it can be hard to raise concerns sometimes.
Whether you have questions about your student’s performance, have concerns about their experience at school, if you need to advocate for language access services, or want to get more involved as a parent/caregiver, if you have questions about bullying, special education services, or simply want to ensure your student is challenged creatively enough to thrive, the steps to advocacy are the same.
Throughout history, leaders of change have brought people together. People became leaders by bringing people together with common interests. Together they set the conditions to build the courage to confront and amplify the inequities they were experiencing. Sometimes, system leaders react to this by retaliating against the person(s). Here is some advice if that is a concern for you.
