Ethiopian Families at Brightwood EC
In the 2009-2010 school year, we worked with Brightwood EC (DCPS) to engage Ethiopian families at the school. Prior to our work with the school, Ethiopian parents prepared their children for school, however they did not play an active role in formal school activities. Based on our work at the school for one year, over half of the families are now involved in weekly parent meetings and/or as Roving Readers. This work was funded by the DCPS Office of Bilingual Education and the DC Children's Youth Investment Trust Corporation.
