Electronic Grapevine - Sharing Our Stories

Sharing Our Stories. This will be an entity wherein African American parents in a given community can share war stories about experiences they have had in schools. Parents often want recommendations of schools from experts. However, it is difficult to evaluate the quality of schools unless one has actually attended for a period of time. What better source of data are the testimonies of parents who have negotiated those schools? Through online chats, parents will be able to read testimonies and judge for themselves whether reports from different parents have validity.
