Children at Risk Parent Class

For March's event at Fortress YDC, Ada Akogun from local non-profit Children at Risk spoke to a small but very engaged group of parents about how Texas grades public schools and what those ratings mean for their children. Children at Risk's motto is "Speaking Out + Driving Change for Children," and that is embodied in the Texas School Guide they publish to help empower families to succeed in public education.After dinner (provided by Jason's Deli compliments of Children at Risk), volunteers from the Junior League of Fort Worth sat down to discuss with parents what they'd learned and how to use that information to help their children receive the best education possible. Every parent also went home with a copy of the Texas School Guide, which is chock full of tips, resources and advice, in addition to the school rankings.
