Getting Male Role Models Involved in Our Children’s Education

May 24, 2018

Altorice and his guests will explore how to overcome the many barriers to fathers’ participation in their children’s education such as:

  • The belief that a child's education is a mother's responsibility
  • A tendency for schools to communicate primarily with mothers
  • Divorced or separated mothers having sole custody of children
  • Fathers' demanding work schedules
  • A failure to recognize the importance of becoming involved
  • Literacy and language difficulties
