This week’s #ptchat brings a special guest from the School District of Philadelphia, Karren Dunkley.  Karren will be answering your questions during the one hour chat on parent engagement around the topic of Parent Leadership and how schools can develop “Demand Parents” as partners.  Back in November, I had the privilege of hearing Karren speak on the Harvard Family Research Project Webinar and blogged about important points made. Join us for #ptchat on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 at 9PM EST.  If you are new to Twitter chats, here’s a good resource on how to become involved.
