As an educator, I find great value in collaborating and consulting with community members, especially key constituencies in the educational process, including parents, teachers, school leaders, and their advocacy organizations, plus businesses, government entities, and nonprofit organizations with educational interests. Each has a contribution to make and is benefitted in helping to raise a child. In today’s world of multiple obligations, expectations, hazards, and uncertainties, children need to be guided and supported in the communities where they live and go to school. Moreover, building collaborative relationships and empowering community members creates networks of support that help children to recognize their value in facing the challenges of life.
