YouTube and Parental Involvement

Have you bumped into yet? Depending on how you look at it, this website chock-full of video clips is either the next step in our planet's evolution to web 2.0, or a sign of the impending apocolypse.

Oh well, let's think positively....while there's a lot of junk on YouTube (anyone with a webcam is a actor/director/commentator? Uh, don't think so), occasionally you'll find a gem. One example: this little clip by Missouri Commissioner of Education, D. Kent King, who talks about the critical need for more parental involvement in St. Louis Public Schools.

Granted, JIS isn't in the same spot as the beleaguered St. Louis school district. We're already in a pretty good place. But even great schools make strides to improve. It makes you think....maybe homework help and fundraising aren't enough. Does a true parent-school partnership require something more?
