Dear Black Parent,
My name is Geri Lane, and I am a public school teacher. I started this group to help parents of children attending the public school system. Did you know that Hispanic students with a first language other than English score better on standardized tests than our children? This shouldn't happen. Our children are falling behind and it's up to parents like you to take control of your child's education, promote literacy, and encourage higher education. I have some very strong opinions about what's wrong with our public schools. You can read my blog at www.thepublicschooldaily.com and purchase my book at www.survivepublicschool.com. You can also post your questions and concerns in this forum, and I'll be happy to help any way I can.
