When a group of Bronx parents discovered that only 17% of their children could read at grade level, they launched a campaign to improve their local elementary school. That campaign evolved into a citywide coalition, uniting thousands of parents from African American and Latino neighborhoods across the city, to bring a quality education to NYC’s children. “Parent Power” tells their story.
There will be a panel discussion following the screening; AFT President Randi Weingarten is among the scheduled panelists.
