Maria Paredes is a Senior Program Associate at WestEd. She specializes in family engagement models, notably working in the Phoenix area on APTTs (Academic Parent-Teacher Teams). It’s all part of the Comprehensive School Assistance Program.
In this conversation with Learning Matters web producer Ted Bauer from late 2011, Paredes talks about engaging a community in a school, how parents can extend learning at home, and offers a remarkable percentage breakdown statistic about just how much knowledge a student is getting from only looking at the school day.
