See if there is an IDRA Education CAFE in your community. Education CAFEs are for families who want to support excellent public education in their neighborhood public schools, especially among families of color, economically disadvantaged, emergent bilinguals and under-serviced neighborhoods.
IDRA Education CAFEs are designed to increase communication and collaboration when possible between parents/caregivers, communities, and their local school administrators and teachers. See below for information on how to start an Education CAFE in your community.
Members organizations include: American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, Deep Center, Georgia Youth Justice Coalition, Intercultural Development Research Association (IDRA), Public Education Matters Georgia, Southern Education Foundation, SPLC Action Fund
An Education CAFE is a family group rooted in a community-based organization, rather than in a single school. Its sole purpose is to collaborate with schools to improve the success of students in the community.
