Program Mission Statement:
This program’s mission is to dramatically improve the ability for parents to extend learning from the classroom into the living room. By presenting active parents with the tools they need to expand on what their kids are learning at school, we have a unique opportunity to improve outcomes for children.
BrightStart Parents are individuals looking to improve their children’s educational outcomes. They want to collaborate with other parents in their communities and states to track their kid’s progress from grade to grade. They are also interested in working with educators who teach the same grade level for advice and ideas to help their children succeed in their public school environments.
Founded by a parent, The Franklin Foundation realizes that parents need as much help as they can get to navigate a public school education made more confusing by standards like common core and toxic testing. There’s no manual for parenting so support can go a long way toward increasing probabilities for success. That’s why we started this program.
We haven’t started the challenge yet for 2018. However, parents are encouraged to sign up using our contact us page. When a challenge starts in your area for your child’s development group, we will notify you. Because we offer our course virtually, there’s no limit to how many people can sign up in a given area. The best part of all, signing up is always free.
