Indianapolis charter booster launches parent advocacy fellowship
When it comes to reforming education, one local nonprofit that supports charter schools wants parents and families to have a seat at the table.
The Mind Trust announced Wednesday that it is establishing a two-year fellowship to develop a parent advocacy organization — and seeking candidates to be a part of it.
The goal of the fellowship is to empower families — particularly low-income families and families of color — to advocate for changes in their publicly funded schools, said The Mind Trust executive director Brandon Brown.
