Aware that I love a challenge and specially when it has to do with education, my friend María asked me if I wanted to train a group of families from one of the most neglected neighbourhoods in Jerez, Jerez Sur, known also as “El chicle” (chewing-gum!).
Rather than follow the classical coursebook we decided to transform the 24 hours of training in a hands-on learning experience, focusing on a project families were interested in. They decided to create a blog (AMPAs Sur en Accción - Parents associations in Action) to reach out to other families who couldn’t come and explain the role of parents in formal education and a fantastic event attended by most associations of Jerez.

The parents presented their best practices, concerns, and most of all expressed the need for learning and working together, to look outside our own schools and neighbourhoods.comments powered by Disqus
