Fascinating discussion of Gen-X parents (and how they differ from Boomer parents.) Bottom line, in order to be successful in the decades ahead, schools will need to build relations with parents from the get-go, provide data, data, data, “market themselves intelligently to this new generation of parents,” and rebrand themselves. We’re talking about all parents– of regular, special education, gifted, talented, bored, everyone. A fascinating discussion that I hightly recommend.
