Presentation on Effective Teaching: Parent feedback (Presentación para Eficaces de Enseñanza: Retroalimentación de los Padres)

In News Blog

Great Oakland Public Schools Leadership Center is convening a series of workshops in East Oakland and the Fruitvale District to help parents understand the importance of effective teaching, and how to advocate for it. Earlier this month, we held a workshop at TCN/ICS for around 15 parents representing seven different schools. 

Here is what they had to say about effective teaching, and why it's important their children experience it in every Oakland classroom (Spanish interpretation in bold):


"Effective Teaching impacts in a positive way and it reflects on the students. As a parent, I am so happy to know that there is an organization like GO Public School that supports the interests of parents like me. We want effective teachers today, tomorrow, and always!"

"La Enseñanza Efectiva Impacta Positivamente y se refleja en los estudiantes. Como madre estoy emocionada de saber que hay organizaciones como GO Public Schools que apoyan el interés de padres como yo. Queremos Maestros Efectivos Hoy, Manana, Y Siempre!" 

-An OUSD Parent

"Effective Teaching is the way to receive the tools needed for our children to succeed and attend an University." 

"Enseñanza Efectiva-es la manera que van a logra tener las herramientas necesarias para que nuestros hijos pueden llegar a la Universidad."

-Rosa Rivas 

"For me effective teaching is very important, because this depends on our children's future. Without effective teaching it will be difficult for our children to succeed and have a great profession and a good job."

"Para mí la Enseñanza Efectiva es muy importante porque de eso depende el futuro de mis hijos. Sin una enseñanza efectiva es más difícil que nuestros hijos salgan adelante y puedan tener una buena profesión y un buen trabajo."

-Jennie Williams 

"Effective Teaching is very important because this will help the students succeed and know the necessary knowledge to be able to continue in higher education."

"La Enseñanza Efectiva es muy importante porque de ese modo se logra que los alumnos tengan los conocimientos necesarios para poder continuar con una educación superior."  

-Carlos Rojas

"It is important to work with the teacher in order to improve the education of our children, so they can have a brilliant future."

"Es muy importante trabajar a la par con los maestros para mejorar la educación de nuestros hijos. Para que tengan un futuro brillante." 

-Elizabeth Bautista

"As a parent of a family, it is very important the education of my children and I love the ideas of this effective teaching movement. In what I can help, you have my support!"

"Para mí como madre de familia es realmente importante la educación de mis hijos y me encante las ideas de este movimiento de enseñanza efectiva, en lo que pueda cuenten con mi apoyo!" 
-Carmen Perez
