Basic Computer Classes Help Low-income Parents Manage Their Children's Education
New Futures provides a broad range of services for children and families in four low-income apartment complexes in South King County. Ninety percent of the families served by New Futures don’t have computers at home, and even more of them are recent immigrants or refugees who struggle with language barriers. For these parents, getting involved in their children’s education is a daunting notion. To encourage the use of computers as a tool for managing their children’s education—for emailing teachers, learning about school events and even monitoring grades and attendance—New Futures offers basic computer classes for parents. The organization also brings school representatives in to meet with parents and provides family advocates who accompany parents to school meetings and help them contact teachers as needed.
This report focuses on the impact of state laws, state regulations, and school district policies and practices that remove students from school and prevent them from accessing educational services due to behavior or violations of school codes of conduct.
