Module 3: Equality and Decision-Making

Image of three adults working together at a computer

In this module, parents and teachers are introduced to the concepts of equality and decision-making. Equality is discussed as a principle for creating a foundation of partnerships, and decision-making as an effective key strategy for involving parents and families. Parent and teacher co-facilitators guide the group in a discussion based on the facilitator slides. We recommend continuing to deepen the relationships between participating teachers and family members by incorporating a “get to know you” activity, a video about the importance of equality and empowerment in decision-making, and a discussion of next steps for the school year.
