Sexist, anyone?

Wow, just when we thought the 40’s had passed. What kind of message does this send to the students.

Definitely not the case

Melissa- I hope all is well. I would like to clear up any misconceptions about the HCDB. This initiative was started 4 years ago to engage/engerize fathers/father figures in the importance of getting involved in school. Seen the conception of this initiative we understood that when parents are involved in their child’s school their social and academic success increases. In most schools(not all) in the US, mothers take the lead and visible role in student’s educational activities. This is great!! However, the more parents the better. This 4 year initiative has only been viewed as energizing more fathers in the importance of children engagement in school. This also provide more opportunities for parents and teachers to work together. The City of Hoover is fortunate to have strong parental engagement practices. If you would like to talk over the phone please feel free to email me your contact info at derrick@derrickmurphy.com. The more support we as parents give our children the better. Thanks.
