The Cultural Wellness Center has produced a case study on community engagement as a strategy for school change. The Center has been working in St. Paul public schools to engage African American parents in their children's education using culture as a resource.
Quotes from the document:
"The CWC began working to uncover the systemic barriers that were preventing African American parents from participating and to lift up the vision of success that African American parents had for their children."
"The CWC built relationships and reconnected people to a strong, healthy identity, to common values, and to a sense of community."
