Ask the Parents

The Norwalk, Conn., school district is forming a parent group to advise the district in how to improve programs for English-language learners, according to an article published this week in The Advocate. (I picked it up from TESOL in the News Blog.) From what I've seen in schools, formally seeking parental advice on how to make programs more effective for ELLs is really unusual.

Readers, I invite you to prove my observation wrong. Does your school district have a parent advisory committee for ELL programs, and how has it worked out?
