Family Engagement must be intentional and inclusive to reach all of the families we work and serve. With that in mind, there are times where schools have trouble connecting with some families, leading educators to believe that thin that these families are “hard-to-reach” or not engaged in their child’s learning. This webinar discusses the “myth of hard-to-reach families”, as proposed by Dr. Karen Mapp and Dr. Soo Hong, and core beliefs to move past that myth.
