Sponsored by the California Community Foundation, La educación con raíces de la familia provides classes in Spanish to parents whose children are learning to read and write in English, creating awareness of the richness of the home culture, and how to draw upon that to support two-language elementary-age children in school.
As of this writing, we are in our second round of classes, having already graduated 10 parents on January 30, 2013. To allow parents to participate, we not only provide instruction in Spanish, but child care, transportation, food and coffee.
The second round of classes began February 20 and will continue until May 1, 2013. All classes, material, and child care are free.
