Hosted by the University School of Nashville, NAIS is presenting a workshop during the People of Color Conference (POCC) on November 27.

About the Workshop: In this workshop, parents and guardians will learn a strategy they can use to partner more effectively with their children’s educators. The goal is to provide new tools to support, monitor, and advocate for their child’s education.

About the Presenter: The Right Question Institute (RQI) is a nonprofit organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Luz Santana, co-director of RQI and co-author of Partnering with Parents to Ask the Right Questions, has spent 30 years as an advocate for students, parents, schools and low-income communities. She came to the U.S. mainland from Puerto Rico, and her experiences navigating the welfare system and other public institutions while earning an associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree–and raising a family–have shaped her approach.
