Parent Involvement at Cabois School
March 16, 2010
Some good people learned about Cabois Community School being destroyed by the earthquake through Christa Brelsford’s amazing story. They’re actually considering funding all costs involved in building a Learning Center/Shelter so that the children of Cabois and surrounding communities can continue their education. And, because the Learning Center/Shelter will be equipped with solar panel driven electricity and satellite Internet there’s going to be a leapfrog opportunity for students and teachers.
The possibilities are very exciting especially in light of the terribly challenging times for the people of Haiti. But, with good reason, the potential funder wants to make sure that the parents are ready to do their part to ensure the success of the school and their children’s education. Today in a meeting with teachers, community leaders and a dozen parents we addressed this question. I was EXTREMELY encouraged by ideas and commitments that emerged.
