    I didn't hear any discussion about one of the most important parts of any educational improvement: parent involvement. Not only do active parents need to be involved in the decision making processes, but all parents need the opportunity to be welcomed into the school, given training about how to work with administrators and teachers to help their children, and welcomed politely and graciously in each school's office. Mr. Skorkowski talked about how important the people are in the process and mentioned only staff and students; the third leg of the base for improvement is the parents.
